Atlético Madrid fans back Simeone

The Vicente Calderón knows who it loves: Diego Simeone, and the Atleti fans showed their support for him today, even after this week's news that he's cut short his contract from 2020 to 2018. 

Applause for Simeone in the 18th minute

And it was in the 18th minute of today's 5-0 thrashing of Sporting that the red and white fans unleashed all their love for the coach who's revolutionised their club, taking them to a Liga title and two Champions League finals, as well as winning the Europa League and European Super Cup and the Copa del Rey against bitter rivals Real Madrid. 

Simeone applauds the Atlético fans

As the Atleti faithful cheered their man, Cholo Simeone came off the bench to applaud the crowd and thank them for their gesture.
