Diego Simeone extends Atletico deal to 2020

By AFP, Madrid


Diego Simeone committed his future to Atletico Madrid by agreeing a two-year contract extension to remain as coach of the Spanish giants until 2020, Atletico announced on Tuesday.
"The renewal of Diego Pablo Simeone is now a reality," Atletico said in a statement. "Our coach has signed a new contract that ties him to Atletico Madrid for two more seasons, until June 30, 2020."
Simeone, 47, has enjoyed huge success since taking over an Atletico side in the doldrums back in 2011.
The Argentine has led Atletico to one of the most successful eras in the club's history, including a first La Liga title in 18 years in the 2013/14 season.
