Simeone vows to stay at 'virgin' Atletico but warns of Real Madrid & Barca's power

  |   Football / ISL

Diego Simeone has stressed he wants to remain at Atletico Madrid next season and help the club grow, but feels Real Madrid and Barcelona have a power that even the world's richest teams cannot compete with.

Simeone guided Atletico to the Liga title in 2013-14, the first time the crown has gone to a team other than one of the Clasico rivals since Valencia won it 10 years prior.

Simeone's achievements have seen him linked with a move away from the Vicente Calderon lately, with a switch to Inter said to be on the cards, but he insists his dream is to move forward with his current side.

"My dream is to stay at the club and accompany the growth it is in," he told radio station Metro 951. "I still see many good things for the club to keep growing. Atletico is still a virgin. I see many ways for improvement. I see many young players that will give us balance to have a good squad."

"I am still excited about collective efforts, it keeps me alive. My vitamins are the players and if they respond as they did the other day against Sevilla, how am I going to go?"
