Love arose from the first moment

And there arose a complicity, an understanding, a communication that we have continued to nurture until today. But at the beginning we had in common being Argentine: the culture, the language, the humor, the music… I always say that Diego is the funniest person I know.” Diego receives the compliment and returns it, but in a more concise: “I would have to spend two days explaining everything that attracts me to her.”

Finding stability in a world like football

Los they have been a couple for ten years They are not easy in the world in which they work, full of travel and long periods in which they have to endure not being together: “We have been fortunate to have had a stable job in something as unstable as football.

Stay together in difficult times

In those moments when things have not gone as well as could be expected, the club has always been positive and has rowed with him to right the course, he acknowledges: “I have had a club that has always valued me and has accompanied me at all timesbeyond the results we have been able to give, to build everything we have built.


Together in Atleti’s solidarity projects

Simeone and Carla Pereyra recently starred alongside their two daughters in a new edition of the Atlético Foundation’s food collection campaign -of which Pereyra is an ambassador-, in which the family is usually actively involved.

“When life has given you so much, I feel like I have a social responsability. I come from a very normal, humble, hard-working, middle-class family. And, together with him, we believe that we have this commitment and this social responsibility,” declares Carla. Simeone adds that the couple’s desire is to help as much as possible while it is in their hands, since if they can help why not do it. “It’s about giving back part of what we have received”concludes the Argentine.

Girls, protagonists of the only routine they maintain as a couple

Simeone’s work does not allow too many licenses when it comes to organizing plans or routine activities, but there is one that they always carry out together: “The only fixed routine we maintain during the season, taking the girls to school, above all else”points out Carla, to which Simeone adds: “And collect them.”
