Diego Simone: Barcelona is no doubt the best team in the world

Atleti­co Madrid is set to take on FC Barcelona in Madrid for the Match­day 24 of the Span­ish La Liga on Sun­day (today). But ahead of the game, Diego Simone spoke to the press and was full of prais­es for the Cata­lan club. The Atleti­co Madrid coach stressed that despite some off dis­play on from the Bar­ca side, they’re still the best foot­ball team in the world.

It’s very hard to com­pete the way they’ve being com­pet­ing over the years. They’ve won a lot of tro­phies and titles under the guid­ance of Luis Enrique, they’ve also com­pet­ed at the top most lev­el in foot­ball. They are no doubt still the best team in the world but even the best teams still have some bad times on the pitch. Barcelona had a bad time at Paris,” said Diego Simone.

We met in the Copa del Rey com­pe­ti­tion and they elim­i­nat­ed us because they were bet­ter than us. In the halves we played against them right here in Calderon, we intend­ed to play high but they scored two goals under 20 min­utes.”

He con­tin­ued “In the sec­ond half, even though were very close to mak­ing things dif­fi­cult for them, they still proved to be the best in the world and stood their ground. After the defeat of Real Madrid, there’s still hope of win­ning the league. We will strate­gi­cal­ly go all out against the best of Barcelona.”
