Diego Simeone became just the second Atletico Madrid coach to reach 500 games in charge as his side beat Getafe 1-0 on Wednesday.

Simeone trails only Luis Aragones (611 matches) in all competitions, with the same two men atop the club’s LaLiga list – Simeone on 340, Aragones on 407.

The victory over Getafe courtesy of a Luis Suarez goal, consolidating top spot, was the incumbent coach’s 301st.

A second LaLiga title triumph under Simeone is in Atleti’s sights this season, yet ‘El Cholo’ is already their most successful coach.

His seven major honours are just clear of Aragones’ six, and Simeone has the best LaLiga win ratio – 60.2 per cent – of all Rojiblanco bosses to manage at least 32 matches
