Brazilian midfielder Diego lavishes praise on Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone.

Brazilian midfielder Diego has branded Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone "the best coach" he has ever played under.

The 28-year-old re-joined Atletico on loan from Wolfsburg last month and made a scoring return in the 4-0 win over Real Sociedad at the weekend.

"My relationship with Simeone was always spectacular," Diego told reporters.

"He's the best coach I worked with in my life. He helps a lot as a player and a person. That confidence he has in me has made a difference in the decisions I have made."

Diego previously played at the Vicente Calderon for one season in 2011.
