Simeone: UCL Will Not Distract Liga Title Bid

share on:

Diego Simeone wants Atletico Madrid to focus on beating Barcelona to the La Liga title.

Atletico Madrid made it to the final by beating Bayern on away goals, but Simeone is thinking only about Levante.

And with just two matches left and both clubs on level points, with Barcelona leading head to head, Atletico can snatch the trophy from the Catalan giants.

And Simeone hopes his side can frustrate their Catalan rivals once again having already knocked them out of Europe.

“Right now I’m focused on Levante, there will be 15 days to talk about it [the final in Milan],” he said.

“We have a challenge and a new opportunity to try and do well. Our enthusiasm and excitement for reaching the last round with options are untouched.

“It is not important to look at other sides, we must depend on ourselves to get the most points and then wait and see what the rest do.

“What does depend on us is our intensity, concentration and personality to get the result we want.”
