Atlético de Madrid this Thursday reinforced its commitment to Diego Pablo Simeone with the renewal of your contract three more seasons from 2024 to 2027, which enlarges the link of the Argentine coach and the club of his life, in which already accumulates 12 years, with eight titles and 642 games, more than anyone in its history.

The club announced it this Thursday at 7:03 p.m. local time (date foundation of the club is 1903) through its official channels:

Diego Pablo Simeone will continue to be coach of our club until June 30, 2027. The Argentine coach signed his new contract at the Cívitas Metropolitano offices, thus marking the continuity of the project that began with his arrival on the red and white bench in December 2011.

In the planned roadmap, even though the course began with only one more year on the contract, the renewal culminates the negotiations between the entity and the coach, who reduces his salary in the new contract four years oldthe current one who had already signed (renewed in 2022 after being LaLiga champion in 2020-21) plus the next three, in charge of Atlético.

It has not emerged, nor does the club mention, whether its continuity at the end of each campaign is linked to qualification for the Champions League, as happened in the previous one, although the coach has not missed a single time either on the league podium or with the pass to the group stage of the top continental tournament from 2012-13 until now.

They are already 12 years of Simeone at the head of Atléticolike the coach with most games in the club's 120-year historyalready above Luis Aragoneswhich he surpassed last season. The Argentine coach adds 462. Ha won 379, tied 148 and lost 115 among all competitions since he took office December 23, 2011. His team has scored 876 goals and conceded 507 throughout that journey.

“The team and the club need you”transmitted to him before his signing Miguel Ángel Gil MarínCEO and largest shareholder of the entity.

“When is the plane?” Simeone answered.. “I had prepared and waited for that call for a long time.. “He knew that the possibility of coming to Atlético de Madrid could come,” the coach, who coached the Avellaneda Racing, while he glimpsed his unavoidable objective.

“The step forward that Miguel took in that case was not easy, because I I did not have the path traveled in such an important way to reach that Atlético de Madrid at that moment,” he recalled in the past Simeone, when he was honored in the auditorium of the Cívitas Metropolitano on March 8, after beating in matches Luis Aragones.

Its debut was on January 7, 2012, with a 0-0 in La Rosaleda, when the tour began to return Atlético to the heights of its history, to the highest places, with a sequence of titles that also makes it the winningest coach of all time in the red and white teamboth in number of matches and titles, with eight: two Suspenders (2013-14 and 2020-21); a Copa del Rey (2012-13); two Europe Leagues (2011-12 and 2017-18); two Ssupercups continental (2012 and 2018) and a Spain Supercup (2014).

He has been the only technician and the only team capable of winning LaLiga against Real Madrid and to Barcelona in the last eighteen courses, also on two occasions, both in 2013-14 and in 2020-21. They are also yours club records for scoring in a season (90 points in 2013-14), at closing of the first round (50, in 2013-14 and 2020-21)the best streak without losing (23 consecutive games), the best series of victories at home both in the League (14) and in all competitions (21)... The brand dated from 1940.

Its last frontier, still insurmountable, is Champions League. He has reached the final twice, in 2014 and 2016. He lost both with Real Madrid. In a cruel way. The first, in extra time 4-1, after the goal of Sergio Ramos, 1-1, in the 93rd minute; the second, on penalties at the San Siro stadium, when the shot of Juanfran Torres He crashed with the stick. During the 90 minutes, which ended 1-1, Griezmann He missed a maximum penalty.

The top European competition has been the scene of his occasional blots in his 12 years at Atlético. In the San Siro finalwhich he himself described as a “failure”, but also in the 3-0 defeat in 2016-17 in the Santiago Bernabeu, in the semifinals (the last time the red and white team reached that stage); the win in Turin with Juventus in 2018-19 or the elimination in the group stage as last a year ago.

Last season was the most complex, the hardest, for the coach, when everything was in doubtbut it came out reinforced by the reaction it promoted after the Qatar World Cup 2022, that relaunched Atlético towards the goal of the Champions League and He has it now in the competition for everything, for LaLiga, six points behind Girona's lead with one game less, and for the Champions League, as first in their group with eight points, after their 6-0 victory last Tuesday at the Metropolitano.

Undoubted its sporting value, Simeone is also an economic engine for Atlético, that has multiplied its budget. For example, it went from 129.8 million euros when it reached 515 in 2020-21, before enduring the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on the entity's coffers. It is 297 percent, increased, above all, in the firm sequence of consecutive qualifications for the Champions League, only within the reach of a few.

From 2013-14 onwards, nothing more Manchester City, Real Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Paris Saint Germain, Bayern Munich and Atlético MadridOnly those six teams have played in the Champions League uninterruptedly, with what that means for the red and white club's economy.

This competition has been a source of income for 700 million euros in the Simeone eraincluding the 50 million euros already secured in the current campaign, in the absence of the television market, if he advances further in the competition and the results he achieves in the three remaining events of his quartet.

These are Simeone's numbers as coach of Atlético de Madrid:
