The former goalkeeper has worked as Simeone’s No. 2 for more than a decade but is now planning to strike out on his own
Diego Simeone’s long-time Atletico Madrid assistant German Burgos is to leave at the end of the season to pursue his ambition of becoming a head coach.
Burgos was a team-mate of Simeone’s at Atletico and the Argentina national team before linking up with El Cholo again as an assistant at Catania and then Racing Club.
Simeone brought Burgos with him to the Spanish capital in 2011 and he helped secure La Liga glory for Atletico in the 2013-14 campaign.
