Despite his respect for Simeone, Klopp is not a fan of Atlético's style.

Klopp turned down Atlético's cautious strategies when Simeone's men won 32 in the Champions League last March 16 after extra time at Anfield Road in March 2020 to advance a total of 42.

The German forgave that annoyance on Monday, saying he was showing his dissatisfaction with being forced to play the game with an entire group just days before the Covid pandemic, before the Covid pandemic left European football for some time paralyzed.

"I was angry at the time, disappointed about a lot in the world," said Klopp. "At that time we had to concentrate on football in a very special situation.

"I don't think there are many cases of players coming back from an anterior cruciate ligament (primary cruciate ligament), a devastating knee injury that is best again after a year, so I'm very busy," he said. Van Dijk.

"I have to be really useful to the group I play for, the fans I play for and the country I play for. The most important thing to get there is to waste time and be safer, what you do.

"the right way and I feel good so there is always room for improvement.

Liverpool are on their way to the knockout stages of the Champions League after winning their first two games before moving to Madrid.
