Diego Simeone happy with set piece goals

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone praises his side after another set piece goal proved the difference against Getafe.

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has reiterated that he does not mind how his team find the back of the net as long as the goals continue to arrive.

Another set piece proved the difference in Atletico's La Liga clash with Getafe on Sunday, with Mario Mandzukic converting from close range after the home side had failed to clear their lines.

"It happened again today. It's a tool in football, it seems like it's a bad thing to score goals like this," he told reporters.

"It's normal to have these types of options. After playing three games this week, it's not an easy thing to score eight goals and keep three clean sheets."

Atletico currently sit fifth in La Liga, just two points off leaders Barcelona.
