Cagliari forward Giovanni Simeone said the Casteddu ‘can help me grow further’ and admitted he wants to remain in Sardinia ‘for a long time’.

The 25-year-old has scored five goals in six Serie A matches this term and has bagged 17 in 43 competitive games since his move from Fiorentina in August 2019.

Simeone said he watched his father Diego’s Atletico Madrid during the last lockdown to help ‘improve’ his own game.

Cagliari forward Giovanni Simeone said the Casteddu ‘can help me grow further’ and admitted he wants to remain in Sardinia ‘for a long time’.

The 25-year-old has scored five goals in six Serie A matches this term and has bagged 17 in 43 competitive games since his move from Fiorentina in August 2019.

Simeone said he watched his father Diego’s Atletico Madrid during the last lockdown to help ‘improve’ his own game.

“During the lockdown I focused on many aspects I needed to improve,” he told Il Corriere dello Sport. “Especially mentally.

“I took advantage of the time at home to watch many videos of Atletico, coached by my father, and some of my own matches.”

Simeone, who made his move permanent in September, has started all League games for the Casteddu since Eusebio Di Francesco took over at the Sardegna Arena.

“I think I’m growing; Cagliari can help me a lot to keep doing it,” he added. “The sports centre is beautiful, and the club is working very well.

“I’m fine here and I want to stay for a long time."
