Nesta: Simeone must leave Atleti

Alessandro Nesta has advised former Lazio teammate Diego Simeone to leave Atletico Madrid this summer, amidst speculation linking the Coach with Inter.

Simeone has been in charge of Atleti since late 2011, but their likely failure to reach the Champions League final this season may prompt the Argentine to seek pastures new.

“I’ll only say that Simeone needs to move on,” the ex-Milan and Italy defender told BeIN Sports.

“He’s been at Atletico Madrid for six years, but now’s the right time for a change.
