Philip has been the last player of the Atlético de Madrid in talking about Diego Simeone. The central, holder before Chelsea in the eighth game of the Champions League, gave an interview to TNT Sports in which he commented on his moment in the team and his relationship with the coach.
“I am a person who likes the other to be communicative. But Cholo is not. He’s a guy who makes a decision and it’s over. He does not give many explanations. It’s complicated for me because I always try to know why”, Explains Felipe in his words for the Argentine television channel, focused on the world of sports. “That left me somewhat uncomfortable. But today I understand. I know how it is”.
Felipe agrees with other recent statements by a former Atlético de Madrid player as Filipe Luis, who commented in an interview that “Simeone has no heart”. Some words that, according to the Brazilian, were taken out of context and misinterpreted, for which he had to clarify what he learned through Twitter. “Some are very upset that Atleti is the leader. They have to create controversy with an interview in which I praise Cholo, the best coach I have ever had, and that he is like a father to me. What a pity”.
