Diego Simeone has confirmed his contract with Atletico Madrid has been cut by two years.
Simeone, who is the longest-serving active coach in La Liga, will now see his contract expire in June 2018 instead of June 2020. Despite the changes to his contract, Simeone insists “nothing has changed”.
“We’ve decided this situation along with the club’s directors and it does not mean we will not renew again when the contract ends,” he said at a news conference on Friday.
“We continue to show what we feel for the club. It doesn’t bother me that people speculate about my future but the fact I’m here is because I want to be here.
