Jurgen Klopp praised Diego Simeone in Liverpool’s preview against Atlético de Madrid

One of the most anticipated matches of the third date of the Champions League group stage is the match between Liverpool and Atlético de Madrid that will be played at the Wanda Metropolitano on Tuesday, October 19 from 2:00 p.m.

A day before the game, at a press conference, Liverpool’s German coach Jurgen Klopp highlighted the work of his colleague Diego Simeone at Atlético de Madrid in recent years.

“Diego Simeone is doing everything right. He is the current champion of Spain. He has been at Atlético for I don’t know how long, but a very successful period. Atlético is a different team because they play with a different system, but they are still the same results machine as before”.

Although he highlighted Diego’s work, he marked distance with his way of seeing football: “Yes I like it? Not too much but it is normal because I prefer another type of football, he said. Other coaches prefer other styles of football, so no one has to like it, it just has to be successful, and Atlético certainly succeeds.”.

Diego Simeone’s team will have the most complicated test of the group and playing at home. The ‘Colchoneros’, who started the Champions League by beating Milan (1-2) and equalizing without goals with Porto, will collide with the most dangerous rival, in the match that could define the leader of the group.

The cast trained by Jürgen Klopp had no mercy on the ‘Dragons’ of Portugal and thrashed them 5-1. They also knew how to defeat a brave ‘rossonero’ team that prevailed 1-2 at Anfield, but the appearance of the ‘Reds’ stars was key to the final 3-2.
