Arsene Wenger has been reigning in Arsenal for more than 20yrs but he is in the final years of his contract and there has been call for him not to continue at the helms for Arsenal.
A lot of names have been thrown into the fray as his possible replacement including Eddie Howe and Diego Simeone but it is the latter that is preferred.
However, recent reports have claimed that Simeone will leave the Vicente Calderon at the end of this season but the Argentine has refused to rule out the possibility of extending his contract with Atletico.
But his future looked somewhat unclear when he reduced his contract by two years to 2018….
The 46-year-old has made no secret of his desire to coach Inter Milan, who he turned out for during his playing career.
But despite the doubts regarding his next move, Simeone will not rule out staying in the Spanish capital beyond the expiration of his current deal.
‘What happened with the contract was about what I thought was best for Atletico Madrid,’ he told beIN Sports.
‘Everyone always says that possibly I will leave in a year and a half, and what the fans might think of that.
But I could also extend the contract.
‘The media are very skilful at creating controversies, which is fine, it must be accepted, and maybe you should answer better so it does not happen.’
Atletico’s form has stuttered this season and Simeone’s side find themselves 6th in La Liga, despite finishing above Bayern Munich in their Champions League group.
And Simeone believes talk about his future is irrelevant while he’s trying to turn their fortunes around.
‘They asked my sister did she think that someday I would coach in Italy, and she said it could happen, it would not be strange,’ he added.
‘They asked my son one day at a Genoa versus Inter game and he said it could happen someday.
‘I have chosen not to speak any more, especially as the results of the team are not great. The important thing for the Atletico fans are the facts.
‘Words come and go, but facts show you the real person. When I leave here it will be because it is good for the club.’
