For the 1992/93 season, the club made a major effort and brought in the Argentinian coach, who had won the World Cup in 1986 and had been runner-up at Italy 90. He signed Simeone and fought to bring in the best player in the world, Diego Maradona, a challenge that he also managed to achieve. Despite the good squad, the team finished seventh. He returned to the club in the 1996/97 season to replace Camacho, but resigned after two months when he realised that he was not able to put the team back on track.
