Jurgen Klopp hits out at Atletico's negative play after defeat

Jurgen Klopp has claimed the hostile atmosphere at the Wanda Metropolitano affected his Liverpool team - and the referee - in a 1-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid in their Champions League last-16 first leg on Tuesday.

They took the lead, aided by a hint of fortune as Liverpool failed to clear the corner and the ball cannoned back off the foot of Fabinho for Saul to stab in from three yards.

The result was Liverpool's first defeat since a League Cup exit to Aston Villa on 17 December, although the club remains on a 42-match unbeaten run in league football.

"Klopp didn't handle it and some of the players were reacting to it and they lost their way of playing". This time around the team was not so lucky in Madrid, losing to Atletico 1-0.

Simeone was delighted with a performance that saw his side limit what he called "the best team in the world" to not a single shot on target, despite having 72% possession. "We started to win the game when the bus came around the roundabout and we saw our fans", said Simeone.

"Yes, there were things we could have done better and things that could have made our life easier".

"This is the result of hard work and what happens when you never stop believing but keep on going", match-winner Saul told reporters. "The atmosphere reminded me of the old nights at [the former Atleti stadium] Calderon". We don't give up when it's 15 minutes half-time so why should we when we have three weeks?

If you wanted to write a coaching manual about how to stop them, then you would watch a video of this match first.

They celebrated as if they had won the tie after the game. "For all Atletico fans who have got a ticket, welcome to Anfield", he added. "It's part of football but I don't like it". "I don't like it".

"The plan today was to get Sadio out of the game with a yellow card, I was a bit afraid that his opponent would go down if Sadio only takes a deep breath or whatever", added Klopp, who was himself given a booking for protesting on the sidelines.

I think a European night there in a situation like this is one of those occasions the Atletico players will not understand until they play in it.

Klopp was also forced to replace skipper Jordan Henderson late on after he tweaked his hamstring, but the Liverpool boss downplayed the severity of the injury.
