Atletico Madrid extended manager Diego Simeone’s contract until 2024, the defending La Liga champions announced on Thursday.

“Diego Pablo Simeone has signed a contract extension until June 30, 2024. Since the Argentine joined in 2011, we have enjoyed one of the most successful phases of our club’s history – winning eight trophies in the process,” Atletico Madrid said in a statement.

The coach is currently the most title-winning manager in Atletico Madrid’s history with eight trophies.

Among the 51-year-old Simone’s achievements with Atletico Madrid, he led the team to two La Liga titles (2021, 2014), two Europa League trophies (2012, 2018), and two Champions League finals (2014, 2016).
