The Atletico Madrid manager explains the secret to his winning philosophy as,”Atlético are about passion, hard work, humility.” 

The above qualities personify Simeone as a coach and player. He is known to be relentless in training, demanding as much commitment in training as he would expect from his players on match-day.

There is no space for pride in Simeone’s team. He explains the need to have the humility to put the team above the individual saying, “I don’t want players who want to be the main characters. If you don’t give it your all and I can feel it, someone else will take your place. Nothing is guaranteed, and if you fall asleep, you’re out.

His team, Atletico have personified those qualities since he has taken over. The players seem to put their lives on the line to win, taking full blooded shots on their bodies, fighting for their teammates and executing difficult defensive plans to perfection.
