He was quick to joke that “I realise my opinion carries no weight here.” You can run your eyes over an edited version of the interview below.

Run your eyes over the current Atletico Madrid squad. On almost every line from top to bottom, there is a player who embodies (hiện thân, cụ thể hóa) the essence of Diego Simeone, carrying the all-powerful Atleti manager's characteristic ferocity (dã man, hung tợn) onto the pitch.

He was an appraiser (người đánh giá) of appearances, would let you know if he thought something you’d asked him to do would ill become you. Politely – because he had the manners of a gentleman of another time as well as of another place – he would quickly run his eyes over you and give his opinion with the faintest inclination (cái cúi nhẹ, không rõ) of his head. He had fine, aquiline (chim ưng) features and at such a moment you felt you were being looked at by a hawk (diều hâu).
