Atletico Madrid coach Diego SIMEONE has spoken about the upcoming Copa Libertadores final involving Boca Juniors and River Plate.
SIMEONE is no stranger to the Superclasico, having coached River Plate in 2008 for one season. However, now coaching in Europe, SIMEONE gave his thoughts on the final. Speaking at a press conference in Madrid, here’s what SIMEONE had to say about it.
“As an Argentine, very happy because last season Lanus represented us in the final of the Libertadores and this year, it’s a repeat (of Argentine clubs) with Boca and River. It speaks very well of the grows that Argentine football has had the last few years. It’s very good for all Argentine’s.
“It will be a fantastic match, with a lot of enthusiasm, a lot of passion and hopefully in peace.”
