Check Out Why Diego Simeone Refused To Shake Jurgen Klopp's Hand After 3-2 Defeat Against Liverpool

After Atletico Madrid's 3-2 Champions League loss to Liverpool, Diego Simeone explained why he didn't shake Jurgen Klopp's hand. 'It's not beneficial for either the winner or the loser,' he claimed.

It was a night of immense excitement at the Wanda Metropolitano. After Antoine Griezmann was sent off, Mohamed Salah held his composure to score a crucial penalty in the 78th minute. With a quickfire double in the first half, Griezmann had gotten Atletico Madrid back into the game.

Liverpool now has a five-point lead over Atletico Madrid at the top of the group. Simeone's unusual actions after the final whistle, on the other hand, dominated the post-match discussion. Klopp was upset by his opponent, having previously declared that he disliked Atletico Madrid's style of play. It happened after Simeone opted down a traditional handshake in front of sprinting down the tunnel.

When asked about the incident during his post-match press conference, Simeone said, "I don't always greet (the opposition manager) after the game because I don't enjoy it." It's not good for the winner or the loser's wellbeing. That's how I see it. But now, whenever I see him, I'll gladly greet him."
