Atletico Madrid Majority blame him for Champions League exit
Atletico Madrid supporters believe Diego Simeone is responsible for the club’s elimination from the Champions League at the hands of RB Leipzig.
Los Rojiblancos were knocked out at the quarter final stage in Lisbon following a 2-1 defeat to Julian Nagelsmann‘s side.
In a survey run by MARCA, Atletico fans were asked about the factors that led to the result and their 2019/20 season in general.
When asked who they thought was to blame for Atletico’s Champions League exit, 57 percent of voters chose Simeone, compared to 23 percent for the players and 20 percent for the board.
When asked which position Atletico needed to strengthen in the transfer market, 68 percent of voters chose the attack.
After that, 20 percent of voters picked the midfield and just six percent in total for the defence (three percent for full-backs and three percent for centre-backs).
Atletico made eight new signings over the course of the 2019/20 season and voters were asked to give a grade for each one.
Only Felipe and Marcos Llorente were given ‘good’ grades, while Kieran Trippier, Mario Hermoso, Renan Lodi and Yannick Carrasco got ‘passes’.
Ivan Saponjic and Hector Herrera were given ‘fails’.
