Earlier today, Atlético de Madrid confirmed that Diego Simeone has signed a two-year contract extension, which will tie him to the club until 2022. Simeone returned to Atleti in December to take the reins from Gregorio Manzano with the team sitting tenth in the table and recently knocked out of the Copa del Rey. Under El Cholo, things drastically changed for the better.
