Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has intensified speculation that his club will make a bid to prise Luis Suarez away from Liverpool in the summer by admitting he is a big fan of the striker.

Luis Suarez: Linked with Atletico Madrid

Los Colchoneros are expected to have a huge war-chest to strengthen their return to the Champions League made possible by selling star Radamel Falcao to one of his rich European suitors.

After Suarez's latest controversy, as he bit Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic, Atletico have been linked with a move for the Uruguayan and could make their interest concrete if the coach has his way.

"I cannot speak badly about Luis Suarez, he is extraordinary," Simeone told a press conference.

"But we have a game coming up that means we have to leave other matters aside."

Simeone was asked about other potential summer targets and spoke candidly about his admiration for River Plate's Augusto Fernandez, who he coached at the club in 2008

"He's grown an enormous amount; as a young player he performed well and he's one of the key players alongside Iago Aspas," he added.

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
