NO PROBLEMS BETWEEN CARRASCO AND SIMEONE
Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has no problem with Yannick Carrasco after the Belgium international reacted angrily to being substituted against Alaves.
Carrasco kicked a water bottle when Simeone replaced him with Fernando Torres in the 62nd minute of Saturday’s disappointing 0-0 draw.
Simeone is unconcerned by Carrasco’s show of petulance, which he feels was simply an expression of frustration with himself.
“When they get angry they make me happy. I never worried about that situation. Carrasco was angry with himself,” said Simeone.
The Argentine is focusing on the club’s Copa del Rey semi-final first leg clash with Barcelona instead which takes place on Wednesday.
