Football players are notorious for buying huge houses that contain swimming pools, gyms and even cinemas thanks to the huge fortunes that top-level players receive.
Diego Simeone is the latest to add his name to this list of new footage showing the inside of the Atletico Madrid manager’s home. The Argentine was featured in a documentary filmed during last season.
And some of the footage took place on his stunning property in the Spanish capital, which boasts a pool, its own football pitch and huge stained glass windows. Here, the Daily Star Sport sees Simeone’s mansion and five other incredible homes owned by footballers.
