A clause sets fire to the end of the season of Atlético de Madrid

What’s next after this ad

The Madrid derby next Sunday between Atlético and Real Madrid (meeting to follow on our live commentary) promises to be very hot! And this at all levels! Rivals of the Merengues, the Colchoneros have already made it known that they will not make the guard of honor to the men of Carlo Ancelotti to celebrate the title of Casa Blanca. Knowing that the Merengues have already done the trick recently to Rojiblancos and Blaugranas, no one will really be offended.

This will still add a little spice to a meeting that has become vital for Atlético. Indeed, after losing 2 goals to 0 on the ground of Athletic, Diego Simeone’s team is now fourth in the La Liga standings with four games to go, with only three points ahead of Betis! Suffice to say that the merengue rival can put him in dirty trouble if he wins at Wanda Metroplitano and Betis achieves a big blow against FC Barcelona.

Diego Simeone’s future up in the air

As you will have understood, Atlético does not want to miss the next Champions League, mainly for financial reasons. But not only ! The radio COPE Padlock dropped a little bomb last night. Concretely, if the Matelassiers do not manage to qualify for the most prestigious of European competitions, the future of Diego Simeone could also be called into question!

Coach of the Rojiblancos since 2011, the Argentinian had extended his contract until 2024 on July 8, 2021. Except that in this lease, there is a clause which cancels all the conditions of the new contract in the event of non-qualification in the Champions League ! If this is the case, Simeone would find himself free of any commitment, thus obliging the two parties to renegotiate, but on reduced conditions. We are still far from such a scenario, but with Real Madrid, Sevilla and Real Sociedad to play by the end of the season (in addition to Elche), Atlético are still far from having secured their place. in the top 4 of La Liga.
