Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone says that he wants to coach Argentina in the future.

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has revealed a desire to coach Argentina in the future.

The 43-year-old is currently regarded as one of the brightest managers in Europe after establishing Atletico as a force in both Spanish and European football.

While revealing that he has no plans to step into international management in the near future, the Argentine has claimed that it is his "goal" to coach his country.

"Being the manager of Argentine is definitely a goal that one imagines in their career and I envision a long career. But at the moment, I see myself as a manager on the training pitch," he told TyC Sports.

"Being a national team manager is different. The best managers, Luis Aragones and [Vicente] Del Bosque have managed the best national team in their latter years.

"They are fitter to be national team managers. I feel very much alive, the objective is there and I hope to reach that goal when we've both reached the best possible moment."

Simeone made 106 appearances for Argentina as a player.
