Diego Simeone: 'It doesn't matter how we score'

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone praises his side's strength from set pieces.

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

The Spanish champions have scored a large percentage of their goals from set pieces this season, but Simeone has said that his team will continue to play to their own strengths.

"Football is very broad and all I can say is I don't dislike it when we score from set-pieces," he told AS.

"It's a tool of football but it's also welcome if we try to score from open play. We try to be strong in everything.

"One of our strongest tools is set pieces. Beyond how we work on them, we have good takers and good headers of the ball."

Atletico face Getafe in La Liga later this evening and could climb to third in the table with victory.
