Jurgen Klopp seems to have no problem to admit when his side has been overpowered by a rival, but this time, he decided to complain about Atlético's attituded during the first leg of their UEFA Champions League tie.
The German boss spoke in the post-match press conference about how Atlético's tactics were good enough to frustrate them, especially when it comes to shots on goal, where the Reds went blank this evening.
Added to that, Klopp slammed how Atlético players blatantly tried to get Sadio Mané sent off after he had picked up a yellow card earlier in the first half.
Klopp concluded the interview by launching a daring claim to Atlético and their fans that are set to make it to Anfield on March 11, when the tie resumes.
