When Lionel Messi's Goal Against Atletico Madrid Was So Good Diego Simeone Had To Applaud

Diego Simeone quickly flipped between pure frustration to full praise as Lionel Messi scored a sublime late winner against Atletico Madrid

The 32-year-old Argentine superstar stunned the Wanda Metropolitano when his curled effort beat Jan Oblak from the edge of the box with four minutes remaining.

And footage emerged online of Simeone on the touchline as he screamed to his team to stop the Barcelona threat.

When Diego Maradona And Lionel Messi Played For Argentina Together

"The best players are the ones who can counter-attack the best. Messi has sufficient technique and, in those situations, he's infallible."

Another example of Simeone's appreciation for his fellow Argentine came a few years earlier when he failed to celebrate Fernando Torres' goal against Barcelona.

The Spaniard scored a superb goal five minutes into the second half to put the hosts ahead of the Vicente Calderon.

When asked why he did not celebrate his team scoring in the post-match press conference, his answer was simple: he saw Messi warming up.

Messi promptly entered the fray and scored the winning goal in the 77th minute to take Barcelona to the top of the table.
