Giovanni Simeone (Diego’s son) scores for River Plate v Olimpo
Whilst Diego Simeone is making a name for himself in management with major success at Atletico Madrid, his son Giovanni is emerging as a key player for River Plate.
The 18-year-old, who is more of an attacking midfielder than his father, started River Plate’s game against Olimpo on Sunday night and scored the opener after 9 minutes.
Unfortunately for River Plate, they would go on to lose the match 3-1 at the Monumental.
