Head coach Only this chapter

Diego Simeone

Date of birth: 28 April 1970
Nationality: Argentinian
Playing career: CA Vélez Sarsfield, AC Pisa, Sevilla FC, Club Atlético de Madrid, FC Internazionale Milano, SS Lazio, Club Atlético de Madrid, Racing Club
Coaching career: Racing Club, Club Estudiantes de la Plata, CA River Plate, CA San Lorenzo, Calcio Catania, Racing Club, Club Atlético de Madrid

• Launched career as a combative midfielder with Vélez Sarsfield and was a full Argentinian international at 18, making debut in a July 1988 friendly against Australia; went on to play in three FIFA World Cups and retired as Argentina's most-capped player (106 appearances, 11 goals). Moved to Italy in 1990 to join Pisa; two years later he left for Sevilla, where he played under Argentina's 1986 World Cup-winning coach Carlos Bilardo and – for one season – alongside Diego Maradona.

• Joined Atlético in 1994 and won the Spanish domestic double in his second season, his first major club honours to add to two Copa América titles (1991 and 1993) plus the 1992 FIFA Confederations Cup with Argentina.

• Enjoyed further success after returning to Italy, winning the UEFA Cup with Inter, plus a Serie A and Coppa Italia double in his debut campaign with Lazio (1999/2000). After four years in Rome, he returned to Madrid for a second spell with Atlético before ending his playing career in Argentina with Racing Club.

• Started coaching career with Racing Club and won Argentinian titles with Estudiantes (2006 Apertura) and River Plate (2008 Clausura); brief spells at San Lorenzo, Italian club Catania and Racing (again) preceded his appointment in December 2011 at Atlético.

• Led Atletico to victory in the 2012 UEFA Europa League final against Athletic Club and to a Copa del Rey final triumph over Real Madrid CF in 2013. A year later, Atlético held off FC Barcelona and Madrid to win their first league title since 1996, although they lost to Madrid in the UEFA Champions League final. Took Atlético to another UEFA Champions League final in 2016, although again they lost to Madrid.

Craig Shakespeare

Date of birth: 26 October 1963
Nationality: English
Playing career: Walsall FC, Sheffield Wednesday FC, West Bromwich Albion FC, Grimsby Town FC, Scunthorpe United FC, Telford United FC, Hednesford Town FC
Coaching career: West Bromwich Albion FC (caretaker), Leicester City FC (assistant, twice), Hull City FC (assistant), Leicester (caretaker)

• Having spent almost a decade working as an assistant manager, Shakespeare took temporary charge of English champions Leicester in February 2017 following the dismissal of Claudio Ranieri.

• An attacking midfielder in his playing days, Shakespeare spent much of his career with Walsall – with whom he won promotion to the second division in 1988 – making over 350 appearances for the club.

• Joined top-flight outfit Sheffield Wednesday in 1989, but stayed less than a year before joining West Brom, where there was another promotion to the second tier in 1993; went on to make over 100 appearances for Grimsby before winding down his career in non-league.

• Rejoined West Brom in 1999 as football in the community officer and went on to become a coach with first the academy then the reserves; left to become Nigel Pearson's assistant at Leicester in 2008, following the manager to first Hull and then back to Leicester in 2011.

• Remained at Leicester when Pearson was dismissed in summer 2015, filling the same role alongside new manager Ranieri; remarkably, Leicester went on to win the Premier League title for the first time although, with the following campaign threatening to unravel, Shakespeare succeeded Ranieri the following spring after the Italian's dismissal.
