Jurgen Klopp shows new "dirty" side as Liverpool produce something new against Atletico

Asia's Tech News Daily

It is often said that the sign of true champions is to play poorly and get a win over the line – while to call Liverpool’s performance away at Atletico Madrid poor would be harsh. It was, instead, dirty.

The Reds unable to assert their dominance for large periods at a time like they have on so many occasions when faced with Premier League opposition.

Diego Simeone’s side are famed for their defensive resilience, but Liverpool made light work of that – putting two past Jan Oblak within the opening 15 minutes.

However, things quickly deteriorated once Antoine Griezmann‘s brace levelled things up at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Jurgen Klopp himself conceded after the final whistle that at the half-time stage it felt like the “game was only going one way.”

Yet, title winning sides rarely know when they are beat – that was very much the case for Liverpool in the Spanish capital, Mohamed Salah notching his second from the penalty spot late on to hand the Reds what could prove to be a crucial three points.

The remaining quarter of an hour saw Klopp’s side cling on in a contest that was perhaps best described by the man himself – the Liverpool boss dubbing it a “dirty” affair.

The drama continued after the full-time whistle, as Simeone dashed down the tunnel – opting against shaking Klopp’s hand.

The German sarcastically reached out his hand to thin air in response, but quashed any lingering ill-feeling after the game.

“The situation is clear I wanted to shake his hand, he didn’t want it.

“He was reaction was for sure not right, mine was not too cool either but we are both emotional.

“When I see him next time we will shake hands, definitely. He was obviously angry, not with me, but the game, the world and stuff like this.”

Former Liverpool star Steve McManaman, covering the game on BT Sport was quick to criticise Liverpool’s performance, claiming: “The game management has not been good.”

HAVE YOUR SAY! How far will Liverpool go in the Champions League? Comment below.

Klopp’s post-match comments seemed to echo McManaman’s sentiments.

“It was a tough game, honestly how you win it I could not care less – the dirty ones are the most important ones.

“When we are flying we win the games anyway, but on a night like this – getting the three points is really massive.”

The Reds boss is correct – Liverpool have already shown they can play elegant, free-flowing football when they are allowed.

Some Champions League clashes, such as last night, will pose sterner tests – but Liverpool’s illustrious history with club football’s most elite competition could be set to continue with showing’s like this.
