Simeone has no desire to leave

Diego Simeone plans to remain at Atletico Madrid for at least two more years and insists he is not interested in becoming Everton's new manager.

The 47-year-old is contracted to Atletico until the end of the 2019/20 season and intends to see out his deal.

Everton parted company with Ronald Koeman almost four weeks ago following a 5-2 home loss to Arsenal and have been linked with Sean Dyche, Marco Silva and Sam Allardyce, as well as Simeone.

However, the former Argentina international said: "As I've said on various occasions, my future is tied to Atletico Madrid and they are going to have to put up with me for the next couple of years at least. I'm absolutely sure about that."

Simeone has been the manager of Los Colchoneros since December 2011, having previously spent two separate spells at the club as a player.

He has guided Atletico to a La Liga title, a Copa del Rey and the Europa League, as well as two Champions League finals during his spell in charge.

Simeone has also revealed that Antoine Griezmann is happy with Atletico and is not considering leaving the club.

He said of the France international: "To be honest with you, he's fine.

"He's the most skilful player we have, the most important player we have in attack. What I see in Griezmann is enthusiasm.

"The team is enjoying a good league campaign but we haven't seen Griezmann's best moment yet, and that's what I'm really looking forward to."

Atletico are 21/10 to beat city rivals Real Madrid on Saturday while Griezmann is 6/5 to score at any time in the derby clash.
