Simeone on Saturday previewed the Spanish Super Cup final against Real Madrid, which is to be played the following day in Jeddah.
“There isn't a more important game for Atlético de Madrid’s fans, players, directors and coaches than this. We know Real Madrid very well. They have world class players and a coach who’s a winner. Benzema, Bale and Hazard aren’t here but nothing changed. We’ll need to find ways to attack them and hurt them,” the Argentine said.
Our coach highlighted his trust in our players.
"I believe in my players. I seek to strengthen the club - which has done a great job since I arrived - and the players. You look at their faces and they want to improve. All of this excites me and gives me energy. When I feel they're in good shape, I fear nothing," Simeone said.
