Question About Manchester City Made Diego Simeone Walk Out Of Press Conference

Diego Simeone was so annoyed with a post match press conference about Manchester City and the Champions League that he walked out.

It was not a good night on Wednesday for Simeone, as his Atletico Madrid side were knocked out at the quarter final stage of the Champions League.

His side seemed to completely fall apart in the latter stages of the game at the Wanda Metropolitano, as Felipe was sent off and a fight even broke out in the tunnel afterwards.

Simeone is well known for his usual antics on the touchline but even that failed to rile City up, as Phil Foden had the perfect response to the Argentine.

The Atleti manager would have already been in a foul mood but one journalist managed to annoy him so much with a question that he walked out of the post match press conference, as you can see in the video below.

City's win in the tie, which came via Foden's goal late in the first leg last week, after the game in Madrid ended 0-0, earned them a place in the Champions League semi final for just the third time.

They will face Atletico's local rivals Real Madrid, after Karim Benzema's brilliant extra time winner against Chelsea, and the thought of giving the Bernabeu side help is what angered the Atleti boss.

"Is it very cheeky for me to ask you if you could give Real Madrid some advice on how to defeat City?" the journalist at the post match press conference asked.

Before getting up and leaving the room, the 51-year-old said, "No, I would never dare to do that," and then stood up and left the room immediately.

Whilst it was the Spanish side on the end of much of the criticism, especially in England, the team's captain Koke accused City of gamesmanship.

Speaking after the game the midfielder said, "Many times we are Atletico who are criticised and today we are proud of what the team has done.

"We wanted to be in the semis, we are hurt, but proud of this Champions League and we will never stop believing. Now to focus on La Liga to get into the Champions League."
