Who is Diego Simeone?

Crazy. Insane. Self-Centered. Reserved. Hard-headed. These words create multiple impacts on the people respective of the situation. These words are enough to make one go red from inside and outside if used in a heated up conversation. If a girl says this to a boy in a girlish accent, the boy will go red with shyness. Also, if an enthusiast gets the comments, he will give a smile and do what he is doing. And even Albert Einstein used to do it. 

Likewise, these words seem to be quite opposing feelings for the doers in the beginning. It seems like a person is trying to become overconfident or over-ambitious. But if you turn the pages of history, it all seems to be a sign of a Genius. It is the sign of someone who makes things happen when they want it to happen. They can’t eat, sleep, or do anything other than thinking about how to achieve the goal.
