Liverpool and Atletico serve up Champions League classic
BBC Sport says It was a game that began with fireworks and ended without a handshake.
Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone’s decision to head down the tunnel without shaking the hand of Liverpool counterpart Jurgen Klopp was perhaps not the most dignified ending to Wednesday’s match, but it took nothing away from what was a frantic and ferocious Champions League encounter.
In the BT studio, former Liverpool striker Peter Crouch said Simeone had “let himself down” and ex-Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott called it “cowardly”.
But both managers were quick to play down the absence of the traditional post-match show of respect before anything more could be made of it.
