The Cholo Simeone does not leave to happen an opportunity to command him some type of message to the Real Madrid. The Argentinian conceded an interview to The Nation in which it spoke of football and of the important that is to have a style of game predefinido to win and consolidate. The trainer of the Athletic of Madrid thinks that the trainers have to adapt to the history of the team in which they play and to his philosophy.

"When the trainers arrive to a club need to understand his history. If we do not understand it, we are allocated to happen it worse that better. If I do not seat this essence, do not go. From the moment that accept to go, the healthiest and the noblest of the trainer is to ask: 'Which is the history of this club?'. And go moldeando your style of game to the history of this club, without leaving to be vos", began saying the technician.

But the Argentinian did not remain here and put like examples of clubs that yes have a style to the own Atleti, to the Ajax or to the Barça, whereas it put to the Real Madrid like counterpoint. "The Ajax has a clear-cut school. The Barcelona​ has it, Juventus also. And the Athletic of Madrid, also. The Real Madrid does not have school. Because alternating in base to the talent his distinct forms to present ", explained.

The reflection of the trainer rojiblanco is deep and very interesting, leaving to the margin the dart that launches him to the Madrid with her. There are clubs that have a style predefinido that has perdurado along his history. The Ajax is the best example of this and the Barça also has the same philosophy from the era Cruyff. The Cholo spoke also of City of Guardiola and left to fall that from this moment that could be the style predefinido of the 'citizens' and that Pep could begin a new was in the English club.

"There are teams that are being born, like the City of Guardiola, that does not have history, but yes is of to little shutting in what Guardiola is marking him like way. And, maybe, in 10 years say: 'The City plays of determinate way'. It will be necessary to see if post Guardiola comes somebody that do him change what is proposing him he. But clear that it is important to handle the history of the club; you inflate them they need to see what results them familiar, and for the footballers is easier to approach to what the club asks them when the club has defined his history", affirmed.

It spoke of the best players of the world

The technician colchonero referred also to the best footballers of the planet and did not put to Antoine Griezmann in the group of players that there is after Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, that for him are in another league. "All the footballers have matched a lot of. Except Messi and Ronaldo, the other have matched more and more. After them, it comes the another line, Neymar, Hazard... They are all very parejos", concluded.
