Simeone lifts the lid on Atletico's chances to win La Liga this season
- Atletico won La Liga back in 2013-14 with a 3 points lead over Barca and Real.
- Currently, Los Rojoblancos sit in first position with 9 points.
- However, Simeone doubts Los Colchoneros can win the league this season.
- El Cholo considers his 2013-14 team was better than the current one.
After three rounds, Atletico Madrid currently sit in the first position with nine points. In comparison, Barcelona are in eighth with four points and Real Madrid are in fifth with five points.
Nevertheless, despite the perfect start, Diego Simeone doesn't believe Los Colchoneros are best-positioned to win the league:
"Repeating that perfect start to La Liga is not too important," Simeone told reporters.
"Because we had players like Raul Garcia, Thiago and Gabi in our team back then and now my players are very young.
"We have youngsters like Thomas Partey, Joao Felix, Thomas Lemar, Renan Lodi, Mario Hermoso, Saul Niguez.
"When we won the league in that 2013-14 season, my players were better and now we are building a team, where each game is a final."
As a reminder, Atletico won La Liga back in 2014 with 90 points. Barcelona and Real Madrid had been left behind with 87 points each.
Indeed, Los Colchoneros' squad has changed a lot since the last season. Actually, Atletico are among the biggest spenders in Spain this season.
Who will be our main competitors to the title this season, Atletico or Real Madrid?
