  FIFA.com - Diego Simeone dreaming big
Never one to shirk a challenge, Diego Simeone's transition from player to manager had an air of inevitability about it.
Born on 28 April 1970, Simeone, an uncompromising and tireless holding midfielder, was a product of the Velez Sarsfield youth academy, the club with whom he made his full league debut at just 17.
Diego Simeone: I feel very good about it as it's something of a dream come true for me. I always knew that sooner or later I was going to go down the coaching road, and now that I've taken my first steps, I'm beginning to like it more and more.
