Simeone: Why I Will Never Sign My Son

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone, whose son recently scored on his Argentina debut, has explained why he would not sign his child for a club he is in charge of.

Simeone: Real Madrid Signing Wouldn't Get In My Team!

Giovanni Simeone, who plays for Fiorentina in Italy's Serie A, impressed in his first game for the Albiceleste against Guatemala at the weekend, scoring a goal and playing the full 90 minutes.

Despite this, though, his father Diego believes luring his son to Atletico would cause complications, something he would rather avoid doing.

"He is a boy who has everything, but, unfortunately, I will never sign him," he said, according to Marca.

"I never want to say never, but it's very difficult to have your kid in the dressing room, both for him and for the relationship.

"If, in five or six years, he becomes a more important figure than he is, we'll talk about another situation.

"Maybe the day that I'm not at Atletico Madrid, he will be able to go."
