Simeone: Real Far Stronger With Kroos

Atletico Madrid coach, Diego Simeone, believes that Real Madrid are a stronger team this season following the business done by his rivals over the summer transfer window.

Simeone has given his thoughts on Real Madrid and has given insights into his own team, ahead of tomorrow night’s clash in the Spanish Supercup.

"Real has improved. Kroos has given them a lot more potential in midfield, more balance, more football... Bale is much better. They're a far superior team than last year's," he said.

He then commented on the comparative squad changes made by Atletico and Real over the summer transfer window.

"We, with €95 million have signed eight players, and they have bought two with same money. Perhaps the odd player is needed or will leave before the definitive team is formed – not just the 11 that play, but the 20 that make up all the players."

He added to his comments by discussing his objectives for the season.

“(Our objective) is to make the Super Cup ours. Regarding the league, we'll see how things go, but for now our reality is to think about Valencia, Bilbao, Sevilla..."

Simeone’s Atletico Madrid will face Real Madrid in the first leg of the Spanish Supercup in the Santiago Bernabeau at 22:55 tomorrow night.
