Felipe Luis has launched an astonishing attack on Diego Simeone.
The Atletico Madrid manager is known as a man who is famous for his emotional outbursts.
It is a little more than surprising therefore to find out from one of his prized players that Simeone has flaws of his own.
“He would ask for your best in each training session. He always asks for everyone’s best, but he’s not very good when it comes to the treatment of people,” Felipe Luis said to OJogo, cited by MARCA.
“He doesn’t find it easy to form relationships with his players. He struggles to understand the personal characteristics of players but sometimes he swallows his pride.
“There have been various episodes like the ones with Joao Felix and the bottle or Luis Suarez, who got angry after being substituted.
“Let’s say that he has friendly relationships with some players and more professional ones with others. It seems as though he gets on well with everyone but he’s not the best in this sense.”
Although Luis may have spoken to the truth about the real nature of Simeone, it does not speak well of Luis either to sell out his manager, who at one point trusted him blindly.
