“I refuse to see Diego Simeone in the Premier League!” – Gabby Agbonlahor

Aston Villa legend Gabriel ‘Gabby’ Agbonlahor insists he does not want to see Diego Simeone in the Premier League.

It was a brutal night when Atletico Madrid were eliminated by Manchester City 1-0 on aggregate in leg the second quarter-final of the Champions League at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, Thursday (14/4) early morning WIB.

The Atleti players looked determined to take on the City stars. Jack Grealish was targeted, as was Phil Foden.

Felipe was shown a second yellow card after being caught kicking Foden, while Stefan Savic tried to drag the Englishman off the pitch, then grabbed Grealish’s hair and headed Raheem Sterling in the ensuing melee.

Felipe’s expulsion sparked an angry reaction from Simeone, who was accused of creating an aggressive ‘toxic’ culture in the match.

“For me, Simeone, I don’t want him to coach in the Premier League,” Agbonlahor told Talksport.

“Very ridiculous. Basically, he was the one who gave his team permission to play wild and kick the opposing players. Savic, I think he can get three red cards!” he added.

Simeone was linked with a move to the Premier League a few years ago. The Argentine coach was once rumored to be the target of Arsenal and Manchester United.
