Atlético coach shaping professionals: The Drill of Diego Simeone

trained For Diego Simeone's Atlético de Madrid, he is in search of himself. "El Cholo" was as professional a fighting nature, of complaints from the opponent about his raw style of play, he replied with the football wisdom: "What happens on the court stays on the court" – the Spanish Version of "a Foul is when the referee whistles". The own striker in front of him could be sure that behind them are little burning, they were allowed to look forward to but also his game after the front. The Argentine was only hard to separate from the Ball and a goal threat.

someone you could have now in the squad, hope you at Atlético. Marcos Llorente was in front of the Corona-forced break in the return match of the eighth finals of the Champions League with two remote shots for 2:1 and 2:2 and a template for the 2:3 Morata the title of defender Liverpool practically alone from the competition shot. Thanks to him, Simeone's Team this Thursday night, for example, in Lisbon in the quarter-final against Leipzig (21.00 in F. A. live scores for the Champions League and in DAZN).

"With his physical abilities can play Marcos, where he wants," said José Giménez recently about his team-mates. After all, Llorente, with 185 centimetres, the Larger in the Team, he is extremely strong and allows his muscular body, not a gram of fat. The 25-Year-old places great value on healthy food, of a special retirement system, he hoped for protection from electromagnetic radiation and has a positive impact on the regeneration processes after the Games. Scientifically this may be controversial, in the obsession for the care of the own body, Llorente draws but at least with Cristiano Ronaldo.

Thus, high scorers as well as the Portuguese Llorente, however, was never. For years, he plays in defensive midfield, in the national youth teams at Deportivo Alavés and Real Madrid. Since he wrote of 2016 first professional contract, he has scored only ten goals. In the case of Real coach Lopetegui appreciated his defensive skills and young talents, but his successor Zidane was the makeover too radical, and so sold the club Llorente the city rivals Atlético. There, the Fans were not exactly thrilled – finally, Llorente grew up in the youth of Real big. With his brand's DNA side parting, his restrained style and the pale skin, he looks a little drained of blood. He seemed to fit poorly to a club whose Motto is: "never Lose the Faith."

Llorente added quickly into the collective Simeone's, but nevertheless, several times not even in the squad. He rarely has the full 90 minutes played. "That was self-Griezmann so, it will take up to Simeone to new players," says Llorentes uncle and adviser, Julio Llorente, and describes the first few months under Simeone "a kind of basic military training". So Llorentes motto will appeal to the coach: "Hard work and a clear Conscience" – which he repeated at the beginning of the season. Llorente knew that he can't initially be a small wheel in the Argentine-developed gear.

However, Simeone does not appreciate the offensive game, the creative anarchy, well, as long as you bring the stability in clutter. Llorente, in his dribbling by great optimism, it takes time with three opponents. He is not Messi, but without that mentality he had against Liverpool will probably not be the same twice, always beset by three opponents, the penalty will be deducted. A playful quality he demonstrated as he hung up the phone with a Pass to Morata for the third goal. Jürgen Klopp complained about the game in atlético's way after the two eighth-final defeats, the Team would play no more football. Philipp Lahm aptly described the success of the Madrid, however, once: Simeone's team will, even under the greatest pressure never nervous. Llorente put it this way: "We have worked incredibly much. We have suffered, we fought, but the victory tastes better.“
