Simeone brushes aside PSG speculation

Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone is only focused on his side's next match amid rumours that he is wanted by Paris Saint-Germain to replace Unai Emery.

Diego Simeone has attempted to brush aside links with the Paris Saint-Germain job by insisting that he is fully focused on Atletico Madrid.

PSG are expected to part company with Unai Emery at the end of the campaign following another early Champions League exit, this time at the hands of Real Madrid in the last 16 earlier this week.

Atleti boss Simeone is among the early contenders to succeed Emery at the Parc des Princes, but the fiery Argentine has refused to discuss the ongoing speculation.

Asked after Atletico's 3-0 win over Lokomotiv Moscow on Thursday night whether he would consider taking on the role at PSG, Simeone simply replied "Celta Vigo" in reference to his side's next match.

The 47-year-old has been in charge of the Spanish club since 2011, winning the Europa League, Copa del Rey and La Liga in that time, as well as reaching two Champions League finals.
