UEFA Champions League

Diego Simeone fights Jurgen Klopp

Diego Simeone has disclosed why he wouldn't shake Jurgen Klopp's hand following Atletico Madrid's 3-2 loss to Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday. 

In a match that was brimming with pressure, objectives and a red card, it was Mohamed Salah who indeed drove his group to triumph as he scored the conclusive support. 

Midfielder Naby Keita likewise got on the scoresheet for the Reds, while Antoine Griezmann got twice for the home side before he got a straight red card in the 52nd moment for a perilous high boot. 

The outcome saw Liverpool open up a noteworthy lead at the highest point of Group B, yet it was Simeone's conduct at full-time that ruled post-game conversations. 

As the whistle blew, the Argentine strategist ran straight down the passage, apparently censuring a handshake from Klopp simultaneously. 

During a post-match question and answer session, Simeone endeavored to dismiss the episode. 

"I don't generally welcome (the other chief) after the game since I don't care for it," he told correspondents, per the Metro. 

"It's not beneficial for either the victor or the washout. I consider it that way. 

"In any case, presently, when I see him, I'll welcome him without an issue." 

Klopp was likewise tested with regards to the non-handshake, and guarded his partner's activities by demanding that football is an enthusiastic game. 

"I wasn't irate," the German administrator told a writer after the match, per Fox Sports. 

"I need to shake his hand, he doesn't need it. In that second, I can comprehend that he was running inside. 

"He's enthusiastic, I'm passionate, and you are not a pleasant individual since you need to make an account of that."
