Atletico Madrid boss Simeone eager to see Messi and Neymar
Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has revealed that he would like to see both Lionel Messi and Neymar line up against his side in the second leg of the Spanish Super Cup.
The two sides battled it out to a 1-1 draw in the first leg, with Neymar grabbing equaliser for the Catalans, but Simeone says he is anticipating a side with both stars in it.
He told a press conference: "I hope Messi and Neymar both play, for the good of the spectacle, but they have a lot of good players and it's the coach who will decide."
Both teams played out a 1-1 draw in the first game of the two-legged affair last week, but the Argentine coach has revealed he would see these ties played over one leg.
He added: "The tie is wide open; but, playing at home and with their characteristics, they’ll take the lead role.
"I would like it if the Supercopa were played over one leg sometime in the future."
