Atletico Madrid manager, Diego Simeone, has said he will see out his contract with the club.
Reports emerged during the week that the Argentine was set to take over at Everton as Ronald Koeman’s replacement.
He also ruled out being willing to sell his star forward, Antoine Griezmann, to Barcelona.
Simeone told his press conference ahead of this weekend clash with Real Madrid he will stay with the La Liga side for the next couple of years. Simeone is contracted to Atletico till 2020.
He said, “As I’ve said on various occasions, my future is tied to Atletico Madrid and they are going to have to put up with me for the next couple of years at least. I’m absolutely sure about that.
On Greizmann reported €90million switch to Barcelona at the end of the season.
Simeone explained, “To be honest with you, he’s fine. It’s a difficult situation – the other day, they took the team photo just as he was leaving to take up his position on the pitch.
“It makes it seem that he doesn’t want to be in the photo. I can understand journalists’ take on it – but he always does that.
“He’s the most skilful player we have the most important player we have in attack. What I see in Griezmann is enthusiasm. The team is enjoying a good league campaign but we haven’t seen Griezmann’s best moment yet. And that’s what I’m really looking forward to.”
