Diego Simeone had a great start with Atletico Madrid, in the current La Liga season that commenced on September 21st, 2020.
The reason behind the Argentine manager’s fortune is just one player. Luis Suarez has worked hard to score goals and assert his presence in Los Concehneros. Subsequently, in an interview with RTE, on 23rd February 23rd, 2021, he said, “Luis Suarez has presented Atleti with a strong presence. Suarez is not just important in the Champions League, but rather in every game that we played. He gives his energy and trust to help us achieve our goals.”
The fifty-year-old recruited the thirty-four-year-old Uruguayan striker from Barcelona on September 23rd, 2020. The fifty-year-old has utilized Suarez since his arrival and boosted his team to the top of the La Liga table.
El Cholo has accumulated two losses, one draw and two wins against Chelsea, after he was appointed Atleti’s manager on December 23rd, 2011. In his last Champions League fixture against the Blues, Michy Batshuayi scored the winning goal that dealt a blow to Diego Simeone and his men.
Cholo believes that with Suarez leading his line, the past mistakes will not rise up again.

Their benches are filled with raw talents as well.”
