'Klopp doesn't care': Pundit reacts to what happened right after the Liverpool game last night

BBC Pundit Dion Dublin has had his say on Diego Simeone walking away from Jurgen Klopp without shaking his hand after Liverpool beat Atletico Madrid last night.

Playing against a well-drilled Atleti side is never easy but Liverpool made it look that way yesterday. The Reds went 2-0 up after just 21 minutes thanks to goals from Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane. Felipe’s 36th-minute red card all but finished the game.

Liverpool won the tie comfortably and all eyes were on Simeone, who had promised before the game that there would not be any handshakes at full-time.

The Atleti boss kept his word and Dublin had his say about the drama.

Dion Dublin: Klopp doesn’t care about Simeone’s handshake snub

He said on BBC Radio 5 Live (Wednesday, 10:07 pm): “Here we go…

“Diego Simeone is waiting for all of his players on the field and Jurgen Klopp came towards him and then Simeone turned around and went back down the tunnel!

“Klopp doesn’t care, he’s won the game.”

The Liverpool boss wanted a good performance and a win last night and he got both of those. He doesn’t really have to worry about Simeone’s post-match antics.

The Atletico Madrid manager doesn’t deserve criticism either. He made it clear before the game that he wouldn’t shake hands at full-time and explained his reasons why. It’s his personal preference and it’s time for all of us to move on.

Liverpool have won each of their four Champions League games in what was described by many as the group of death. They will likely win their next two games as well and they’ll again be one of the favourites to go all the way in the competition.
