Tapping the assistant referee’s head? Not a good look, bro.
In general, Diego Simeone seems cool and passionate. He busted the Barcelona/Real Madrid La Liga Duopoly last season and brought Atletico to the Champions League final. He’s loyal to his players and they seem to love him. Simeone was a fantastic, gritty defensive midfielder who was once Argentina’s most capped player.
It’s SimEarth and we’re all just living in it. But palming the fourth official’s head made him seem like an emasculating, patronizing bully.
Don’t take the role home with you, Simeone. Stay cool.
