And it is that Simeone ended that silence in Mestalla with applause that was heard throughout the stadium. And he was visibly excited with tears in his eyes.

The Atlético de Madrid coach shared a dressing room with Maradona at Sevilla and for Argentina. He also played against Diego in Italy when the ’10’ was at Napoli at the Simeone in Pisa.
