Klopp reveals he doesn't like Simeone style of play that much

"Diego Simeone is doing absolutely everything right," Jurgen Klopp told a press conference ahead of the Champions League clashes between Liverpool and Atletico.

"He is the current Spanish champion. Very successful at [Atletico]. He has a bunch of world-class players, keeps them on their toes, they fight with all they have for their lives.

"That says a lot about the quality of Diego so I couldn't respect more what they do.

"Do I like it? Not too much but that is normal because I prefer a different kind of football. That's me. Other coaches prefer different styles of football. Nobody has to like it, it just has to be successful and that is what Atletico is for sure."

This will be the first game between the sides since the Reds' dramatic defeat at Anfield in March 2020, the last game before the lockdown.

Wanda Metropolitano is a happy place for Liverpool who won the 2019 Champions League at Atletico's stadium. Still, it's a tough place to go to face Simeone's side who defeated the Reds both home and away in 2020.
