In the coming week’s Diego Simeone will attempt to make history with Atletico Madrid, the former Nerazzurri player will fight to win a league and Champions League double for the team from the Spanish capital. He would become just the third non European coach to guide his side to a European Cup and could be following another Nerazzurro on the path to greatness. Helenio Herrera and Simeone were both born in Palermo, Buenos Aires. Just like ‘El Cholo’ the coach of La Grande Inter also managed Atletico Madrid. Il Mago (The Wizard) guided the Spanish club to back-to-back league titles in 1950 & 1951 before coaching Barcelona and then famously Inter. With so many links between the two managers, could Diego Simeone be walking a path which will one day lead him to manage the black and blue side of Milano?
