Internet Desk: Atletico de Madrid fans get a huge news as their favourite manager Diego Simeone decides to stay at the Madrid based side for two more seasons amidst strong interest from Inter Milan.

The Argentine has been frequently linked with the Italian giants, who he played for between 1997 and 1999, but he has decided to commit his future to his current employers.

Simeone is adored by the Atletico Madrid faithful having won the league title with the club during his time as a player and manager.

‘The much-awaited news by the Atletico fans is thus confirmed, something that [club president] Enrique Cerezo, [chief executive] Miguel Angel Gil and Simeone himself have always hinted at in their public statements.

‘He started his seventh campaign as Atletico manager this season, the coach in La Liga with the most time at the helm of his team, and only Arsene Wenger (at Arsenal) beats him in terms of elite European sides.’

Atletico have won one La Liga title, Copa del Rey, Spanish Super Cup, Europa League and UEFA Cup during Simeone’s time in charge.
