Diego Simeone makes bold claim against City ahead of CL clash

Diego Simeone dubs Man City as Champions League favourites.

The Cityzens will welcome Atletico Madrid at the Etihad for their quarter-final tie of the Champions League.

They are currently leading the Premier League table and looks robust in the Champions League.

Both the teams will be meeting each other for the first time and Simeone knows City are favorites for Champions League glory this season.

Tonight we will witness a clash of style between two managers with different perception of football.

“It’s a joy to watch how Man City play,” Simeone told a news conference on Monday on the eve of the first leg against Pep Guardiola’s side.

“What I like about teams like Man City is the effort they put on trying to recover the ball and maintain possession. It’s nice to see them play.

“What drives me the most is seeing players of that quality always working and active in their fight for every ball. It’s what all coaches want.”
