Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has blasted his Manchester City counterpart Pep Guardiola’s evaluation of his side following their Champions League quarterfinal clash.
Guardiola apparently gave a warm praise to Madrid’s performance in the second half of their 0-0 draw on Wednesday but Simeone felt the City boss was looking down at his team.
The result saw the EPL side reaching the semifinals 1-0 on aggregate.
“I don’t have to give an opinion, whether someone speaks well of us or not,” Simeone told reporters.
“A lot of the time, those people who have a large vocabulary, who are very intelligent, they show contempt in their praise.
“But although we might not have such large vocabularies we are not that stupid.”
