Diego Simeone, Manager of Atletico de Madrid looks on during the Press Conference ahead of the UEFA Europa League Semi-Final between Atletico de Madrid and Arsenal, at the Wanda Metropolitano, Madrid, 02.05.18 (c) Harriet Lander | SportPix.org.uk
Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone believes Mesut Ozil is Arsenal’s ‘most dangerous player’ ahead of the second their Europa League semi-final second leg on Thursday.
The Spanish club salvaged a 1-1 draw at the Emirates Stadium last week as Antoine Griezmann’s late equaliser cancelled out Alexandre Lacazette’s opener.
Simeone, meanwhile, will not be on the touchline for the return leg after being sent off for his reaction to Sime Vrsaljko early red card.
But the Atletico Madrid manager has warned his players to be wary of Ozil for the return leg.
‘Our line is to think about Arsenal. They are a very direct team,’ said Simeone.
‘They have many players between the lines, who float in a difficult place to score.
‘They have a lot of speed in the last third.
‘Ozil is the most dangerous player they have, because of his creativity and vision of the game.’
