El Cholo has won two league championships (2013-14 and 2020-21) and will go out with the aim of fighting again for LaLiga. Only two coaches in the entire history of Atlético have won two league titles: Zamora (39-40 and 40-41 and Helenio Herrera (49-50 and 50-51).

Simeone has a contract until June 2022 and is in negotiations with Atlético to renew to extend his contract with Atlético for two more years, for which he will end his commitment to the Madrid club in 2024. The idea of the rojiblancos leaders is that of That Cholo can have a three-year cycle at the head of the team, a stage in which players such as João Félix, Lodi, Hermoso, Marcos Llorente, Lemar ... players who have to be very important in these next campaigns can consolidate.

The Argentine coach has led Atlético in 527 games and has won eight titles as coach of the Madrid team: two Leagues, one Cup, one Spanish Super Cup, two Europa League and two European Super Cups). Simeone is the coach with the most titles in the history of the rojiblanco club. Cholo will celebrate a decade at the helm of Atlético, which he has turned into one of the best in European football.In addition to repeating the league title, Atlético will start the 2021-22 season with the great objective of fighting for the Champions League, the trophy that is missing in its history. He reached two finals but failed to win the Champions League. This year the team was disappointed to be eliminated by Chelsea, ultimately the champion. The components of the rojiblanca squad have always recognized that fighting for the Champions League is one of the great objectives of the team. And for the Cholo even more.
