Diego Simeone Has Hinted That He May Again Refuse To Shake Jurgen Klopp’s Hand Because He Dislikes The ‘False’ Gesture

Posted by

Fiery Diego Simeone, the manager of Atletico Madrid, has intimated that he will shun Jurgen Klopp’s handshake when the two sides meet on Wednesday night.

After a 3-2 setback to Liverpool at the Wanda Metropolitano two weeks ago, Simeone drew the ire of Klopp by rushing down the tunnel.

The Argentine was enraged by a late decision to deny his ten-man side a penalty, guaranteeing Klopp’s team was able to get a narrow victory over the line.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference on Tuesday, Simeone said: ‘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.
