Diego Simeone says that he has too much love for Atletico Madrid to consider coaching Real Madrid.

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has claimed that he will never coach Real Madrid.

The 42-year-old played for the Rojiblancos and after being appointed the club's coach in December last year, led them to Europa League success in the 2011-12 season.

"I would never coach Real Madrid because I am sentimental about the old things," he told Rock and Closs. "I must be mad but it lives in my heart what I feel for this football club.

"I have a contract until the end of the season and if you know me, then you know I go on feelings.

"At the moment I feel good and I hope we can continue game by game, achieving what I have always wanted for Atletico."

Atletico have made an unbeaten start to this season's La Liga campaign and are currently second behind Barcelona in the table on goal difference.
