Diego Simeone explains why he will not shake Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp’s hand on Wednesday

Liverpool vs Atletico Madrid

Liverpool are back in Champions League action on Wednesday evening, facing off with Atletico Madrid for the second game in a row.

The Merseyside outfit head into the game having so far picked up maximum points from their opening three European ties of the season.

This, in turn, means that Liverpool will kick off on Wednesday already boasting a five-point lead atop of Group B.

So, should FC Porto and AC Milan draw in the other Group B tie whilst Liverpool beat Atletico, Jurgen Klopp and co. will have secured passage into the knockout rounds with two games to spare.

Why Simeone will not shake Klopp’s hand

Atletico, though, are not expected to be a pushover and should prove a stern test for Liverpool.

Liverpool would come away with a 3-2 victory last time they met last month, following which game, Diego Simeone caused quite the stir in England and with Liverpool fans especially after snubbing a Klopp handshake post-game:

However, Simeone is set to do the same on Wednesday as well, not out of disrespect to Klopp, but simply because he does not believe in the greeting:

“I don’t like the greeting after the match because they are the emotions of two sides in different emotional minds. I know in the UK it is a custom but I don’t share it and I don’t like the falseness it may include. I don’t know Klopp as a person very well but I know he is a great coach who has done great work at every club he has been at.”
