Diego Pablo SIMEONE | 1998-2001

Postby PES Stats Database » 2009 Apr 06, 21:44

Name: Diego Pablo Simeone
Nickname: "Cholo"

Club: F.C. Internazionale Milano (1998/1999) | SS Lazio (1999/2001)


INFO:

When Simeone was 14, his youth coach Victorio Spinetto nicknamed him Cholo as his energetic play reminded him of former Boca Juniors player and Argentine international Carmelo Simeone (no relation) who had that nickname.

In his club career that started in 1987, Simeone played for Velez Sarsfield, Pisa, Sevilla FC, Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan, and Lazio.

For the Argentine team, Simeone amassed 106 caps, the first coming in 1988.

Simeone won two Copa America's with Argentina in 1991 and 1993. He played in the 1994, 1998 and 2002 World Cups. As a midfielder, Simeone scored 11 goals for his country. He was considered a leader on the pitch. He was a member of the team that won the silver medal at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia.

During the 1998 World Cup, David Beckham was sent off for kicking Simeone in retaliation for a foul. (see also Argentina and England football rivalry). Simeone later admitted to exaggerating injury from the kick, in order to get Beckham expelled.
In the following match, against the Netherlands, Simeone was injured by a tackle during his team's defeat. In the 2002 World Cup, his last, Argentina was eliminated in the group stage.

A sometimes intimidating figure on the pitch, he once described his style as "holding a knife between his teeth". Simeone admitted to being "embarrassed" at having surpassed Diego Maradona as Argentina's most capped player (he has since been surpassed by Roberto Ayala and Javier Zanetti).

:lol: if only. Then he'd still be an Inter player and he'd be in our midfield alongside cambiasso

Increased RESPONSE to 92, I think he deserved it being always hunting for the ball and in the right position in every side of the pitch...

What was his original value? 92 sounds a lot for a CM/DM, but as I only watched him from time to time I can't really say.

Congrats on the stats though, although I didn't see him regularly he was a terrific player even if he operated in the shadow of Redondo. These stats are much better than the other classics versions I've seen of him.

He was at 89, if you consider Cambiasso was is currently at 93, I dont see Simeone was so much below him, especially in the attacking aspect, he was always ready to anticipate and read where the ball was directed...

When he played for Intr and Lazio he wasn't in the midfield the one protecting the defensive line, he played more as CMF...He was not slow at all, he had a decent ACC and overall TS...

Would u say Montolivo is slow? Deco was slow? Rui Costa? This guys stats say they'r clearly slower than Simone, even with the ball. At least decrease DS to green numbers. He's as fast with the ball as 98's del piero! :P

I would say he was faster than Montolivo, Rui Costa and Deco, I am 99,9% shure he was 3-4 pts above these guys, either in ACC or TS, but I will drop his DS as you suggest...

With the ball he was clearly slower than Rui Costa and Deco.

But without the ball I think he was faster.

I like this set of stats :D

Nice set, i would only increase his TW to 90(he was cpt everywhere he played)

Why agg 87? seems too much to me... I didnt test this set, but wouldnt this take him to the opponents box in every attack?

Must extend his era to his first Atlético times. He was a) Just as good or even better when he was at Atlético b) It's the team he worships after all 8-)
