Zanetti: ‘Simeone? We’ll see…’

Inter vice-President Javier Zanetti is coy on Diego Simeone - “we’ll see what happens in future”.

The Atletico Madrid Coach confirmed yesterday that he wants to return to the Nerazzurri in future, this time on the bench.

Stefano Pioli has just been appointed at San Siro, but when the decision was made it was widely rumoured that he was a stopgap while waiting for El Cholo.

“Simeone? Who knows what will happen in the future?” Zanetti told reporters.

“We’re focused on the present and on Pioli, he’s looking to fix things and finish as high as possible. Nobody knows what will happen in future.

“Pioli has had a big impact.

“We have an obligation to try and reach Champions League qualification, and we’ll make our assessments at the end of the season.

“We don’t hide, there are problems and we have a lot of them, but we must have the strength to solve them.”
