TOON OF THE WEEKEND: OUTSIDE GENTILITY, HOME CRY

By: Makaveli

You have to feel for Diego Simeone. The Atletico Madrid boss has steadily assembled a team from relatively nothing — compared to what resources are available to other clubs — that has consistently rivalled Europe’s elite over the last few years. And while he’s managed to take the wind out of the sails of some of the continent’s finest, one club, city adversaries Real Madrid, has proven a hurdle too tall to scale — at least in the Uefa Champions League. Twice in the last three seasons, the more illustrious Madrid side have pipped their ambitious neighbours in the competition’s finale, the latest coming on Saturday via a shoot-out.
Despite the characteristic brave face Simeone displayed post-match, it apparently was quite a different story when the Argentine got home and had time to do some private reflection on the day’s misfortune. KickerGH’s cartoonist, Makaveli, gives you a peek.
