MADRID -- Atletico Madrid extended the contracts of coach Diego Simeone and his staff until the end of the 2024 season, the club said Thursday.

The extensions come after Atletico won its first Spanish league title since 2014. The contracts had been set to expire next June.

"Pride. Responsibility. Challenges. Joy," Simeone said on Twitter. "Happy to continue at Atletico de Madrid."

Simeone took over Atletico in December 2011 and is the coach with the most consecutive seasons in charge of a Spanish league club.

The Argentine is Atletico's most successful coach with eight titles and 316 victories.

Simeone played as a defensive midfielder with Atletico in the 1990s and 2000s.
