Diego Simeone’s agent: ‘Only a matter of time’ before he joins Inter Milan

The sister-agent of Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has confirmed that the tactician will one day manage Serie A giants Inter Milan.

Atletico reign

Argentine tactician Simeone has been in charge of Atletico since 2011.

And the former Rojiblancos’ midfielder has since gone on to establish himself as one of the most highly-regarded tacticians in world-football.

All told, since taking his place on the Atletico bench, Simeone has racked up a pair of Europa League and UEFA Super Cup crowns, the Copa Del Rey, reached a pair of Champions League finals, and broken the stranglehold of Real Madrid and Barcelona on La Liga by clinching the Spanish top-flight title in 2013-14.

Inter bound

As such, Simeone is understandably a man in-demand across Europe.

And, as revealed by ‘El Cholo”s sister-agent this afternoon, Simeone has already set his sights on taking over at one particular club at some point in the future.

Speaking in an interview with La Gazzetta Dello Sport, Natalia Simeone explained:

‘Diego said it too, sooner or later, he’ll end up at Inter. ‘I think it is only a matter of time.’

‘He loves the club, the atmosphere and living in Milan. Inter is a side he would really love to coach. I should point out that he is also still very fond of Lazio, too.’

Simeone lined out for both Inter Milan and Lazio during his days as a player.

Natalia added, though, that her brother still has unfinished business with Atletico, and that he has no plans to depart the Spanish capital for the time being:

‘At the end of the day, passion always wins out. Diego has been at Atletico for seven years.’

‘He is one of the best coaches in the world, but he remains where he knows there is still work to be done — and I stay with him.’
