Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone: LFP awards didn't reflect reality

Atletico Madrid head coach Diego Simeone praised his team for beating Getafe amid a flurry of league and Champions League fixtures.

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has said the fact that none of his players won a Spanish Football League (LFP) award "did not reflect reality."

Last season's La Liga champions had six nominees across the player categories -- Thibaut Courtois, Felipe Luis, Miranda, Gabi, Koke and Diego Costa -- but did not receive an award.

Simone, named as best coach, made a point of thanking his players in his acceptance speech.

And in interviews with Spanish radio, reported by AS, he said: "I think that saying...

Mario Mandzukic: Pep Guardiola didn't treat me with respect

Mario Mandzukic had a difficult year under Pep Guardiola at Bayern Munich.

Mario Mandzukic says he felt Pep Guardiola forced him out of Bayern Munich last season.

Mandzukic joined Bayern in summer 2012, and was a key player in the treble-winning team coached by Jupp Heynckes, scoring in the 2-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund in the 2013 Champions League final.

However, after Guardiola took charge that summer and changed the team's playing style, the Croatia international had a less important role.

Despite scoring 18 Bundesliga goals last season, there was no surprise when...

Awards snub of Atletico Madrid reflects power, not performance

Atletico Madrid head coach Diego Simeone praised his team for beating Getafe amid a flurry of league and Champions League fixtures.

The Spanish football league (LFP) held their premier event, the annual awards gala Monday evening in Madrid. Think The Oscars but far more drawn out and with infinitely more drama queens.

The ceremony is essentially designed to reward the top performers from the previous season's domestic league campaigns in the top two divisions in Spain. Quite why it is held five months after the season has ended is anybody's guess. It is a nice idea, though, and good that those who performed well can be recognised.

Enrique Cerezo blasts La Liga awards; Cristiano Ronaldo defends haul

After picking up three trophies at the La Liga awards, Cristiano Ronaldo says he has no intention of slowing down.

Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo reiterated on Tuesday that his players deserved more La Liga awards but Real Madrid big winner Cristiano Ronaldo said the distribution was fair.

"I am not surprised that Madrid took home more awards than Atleti. I congratulate them because they had a very good season," Ronaldo told Marca.

Real Madrid dominated the list of winners as the Spanish Football League (LFP) awards were handed out a gala in the Spanish capital on Monday night, with reigning Liga champions...

Mario Mandzukic: I rejected Premier League offers to join Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid head coach Diego Simeone praised his team for beating Getafe amid a flurry of league and Champions League fixtures.

Mario Mandzukic says he turned down better contract offers from elsewhere to sign for Atletico Madrid.

Mandzukic -- who scored in the 2013 Champions League final for winners Bayern Munich -- was linked with a host of clubs including Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Juventus last summer before joining Atletico in a deal worth 22 million euros.

The Croatia international told Sportske -- in quotes picked up by AS -- that he could have moved to England, Italy or Russia, but had chosen the current...
