Jamie Carragher praises the work conducted by Diego Simeone as Atletico Madrid coach.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has praised the job that Diego Simeone has done at Atletico Madrid.

The former Argentina international led Los Rojiblancos to the La Liga title last season, before seeing his side beaten in extra time of the Champions League final by fierce rivals Real Madrid.

Simeone's charges beat Los Blancos 2-1 on Saturday at Santiago Bernabeu and Carragher has talked up the achievements of the Atleti coach, after seeing him lose the likes of Diego Costa, Thibaut Courtois and Luis Filipe this summer.

He told Sky Sports News: "They probably should have won the Champions League and I felt for them there.

"Maybe Simeone will get criticised in Spain, but job he has done is probably as good as anything you'll see for a long time.

"Especially when you consider he's competing with Real Madrid and Barcelona."

Atletico travel to Olympiacos in the Champions League on Tuesday.
