Diego Simeone bans title talk

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone continues to play down talk of his side winning the La Liga title.

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has insisted that his side still have work to do if they are to claim the La Liga title this season.

Friday's 2-0 win over Elche moved the capital outfit six points clear at the top of the table, but Simeone has called for focus in their remaining four "finals".

"We really don't talk about that. We know how difficult it will be," Simeone told reporters.

"We came here to put in a great effort and make sure victory was achieved. We don't talk about that. Now we recover for Tuesday's match [against Chelsea in the Champions League] which is very important for the team and for the club.

"There are four finals left but we play three games away from home. That's a lot. We focus on the next game."

Title challengers Barcelona face Athletic Bilbao tomorrow evening, but Real Madrid are not in league action this weekend.
