Simeone: Why I Will Never Sign My Son

Diego Simeone: Why I Will Never Sign My Son

By Kurt Buckerfield - Sep 12, 2018 11:27 AM @KurtLaduma

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."

Reports: The Four Players Zidane Would Sign For Man Utd

Since his move to Europe in 2016, the 23-year-old has scored 29 goals and assisted a further eight strikes in 79 games for Genoa and Fiorentina.

Are you excited to see what the future holds for the striker? Let us know in the comments section below.

That is childish and lack of confidance from you man if he is a good player then why not sign him? If you ever get a job to manage Argentina national team then what are you gonna do? reject good offer or snub a good player? you need to come to the party and stop behaving irresponsible

@Pirates_999 You cant compare the two because Zidane took them to Real Madrid development whilst he was still a player,and non were promoted by him to the first team,and he played his son in a meaningless game,barcelona had already won La-liga

I like how this coach think really, he doesn't want to do what Zidane did at Madrid, took all his sons to Madrid he even compromised one good keeper just to please his son and his eldest son was also getting a start in Madrid over best players that were there
