Making full use of the international break, Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone decided to make a trip up north last weekend as he took his girlfriend Carla Pereyra all the way to London.
Ahead of Atletico’s all-important game against Barcelona over the coming weekend, both Diego and Carla seemed to have spent some great time together as the couple dined out at Chiltern Firehouse in London. It appears that the couple had planned their trip to perfection. Before visiting the fancy eatery, they hit the street and visited Notting Hill followed by a walk around the Portabello Market.
Simeone donned an-black outfit – a black coat and a black trouser – followed by a fancy shade and white shoes. Carla, on the other hand, complimented her partner by wearing a black shiny coat. Carla, 31, is an Argentinian model and reality star who moved to Italy at the age of 17, where she worked with Max Mara and Alberta Ferretti.
According to the Spanish outlet Revista Love, the couple met back in 2014 in a restaurant where Diego approached and admired her beauty. As things stand for the couple, they have a lovely daughter Francesca together and Carla also complements Diego’s son perfectly. Talking about Diego, who is 17 years older to her, Carla was quoted as saying,
“We complement each other. We share a lot of time, we make plans, we go to the gym … It’s nice when the other person makes you feel better, and that happens to me with Diego.”
Despite his brilliant work with Atletico, which includes two Europa League titles, one La Liga honour and two Champions League runners-up medal, Diego is constantly linked with a move away from Spain. At the beginning of the current season, Simeone was thought to be moving to France with PSG interested, but the move failed and Carla described the deal by saying,
“Diego has received very big offers.
“Paris Saint Germain wanted to pay him double what he is on at Atletico, but we want to live here. I like Spain and so does Diego.”
