In LaLiga, Atletico Madrid is seven points clear, and Diego Simeone was asked if he rated Luis Suarez as his best signer.
After firing Atletico Madrid seven points clear at the top of LaLiga, Luis Suarez was hailed as “amazing” by Diego Simeone.
Suarez’s second strike of the game was a late penalty and bringing the striker’s haul to 11 goals in 14 league games he secured Thursday night a 2-1 victory over Eibar.
Simeone acknowledges the influence of Suarez, but during his reign, he was hesitant to compare the signings he made.
“I don’t stop in mid-season to think about such an argument,” Simeone said at the press conference. “He is amazing and we are very happy that he is with us.”
“He is a great player with great characteristics. He knew how to play the game and gave us an important victory with a great defensive effort from the team.”
