Diego Pablo Simeone (born April 28, 1970 in Buenos Aires) is an Argentine football manager and former player. He is the current coach of the Racing. A defensive midfielder, he was the most capped player ever for Argentina (he has been since surpassed).

When Simeone was 14, his youth coach Victorio Spinetto nicknamed him Cholo as his energetic play reminded him of former Boca Juniors player and Argentine international Carmelo Simeone (no relation) who had that nickname.

In his club career that started in 1987, Simeone played for Vélez Sársfield, Pisa, Sevilla, Atlético Madrid, Inter Milan, and Lazio.
