SIMEONE: CORREA MORE VERSATILE THAN AGUERO
The coach has been impressed with the
Argentine's start to the season but says he is a
different player to the former Atletico Madrid
Diego Simeone says Angel
Correa offers Atletico Madrid a more varied
threat than the club's former striker Sergio
Correa has impressed Simeone in the opening
weeks of the new season with his energy up
front for Atleti, while also showing he can link
up play by dropping deep.
The Argentine, 20, has had to wait for his time to
shine at Atleti after suffering a heart problem
last season, but scored his first goal of the
campaign against Eibar at the weekend.
Simeone has been impressed with the
youngster and feels he could prove to be a
better all-round player than Aguero, who scored
100 goals in 230 appearances during his five
years at the club.
"They seem different to me," he told Sport
when asked about comparisons between the
"One [Aguero] is more a pure forward, a
number nine, and Angel breaks down the wings,
moves between the lines, is improving and we
hope that with this improvement the team will
have different options.
"Angel can play in any part of the pitch, as a
third forward out wide, or up front if needed. Kun
is more a finisher of moves."
