Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone branded 'cowardly' for snubbing Jurgen Klopp handshake

Fellow pundit, and former Liverpool star, Peter Crouch also criticised Simeone for snubbing Klopp’s handshake.

“You’re so caught up you forget [national allegiances] the VAR, penalties, all the goals, there was so much drama and not even a handshake at the end of it,” he told BT Sport.

“Got to respect him so much as a manager Simeone, during the game whining the crowd, the players up, I understand it. But not shaking hands at the end, I just think he lets himself down.”

Liverpool face Atletico again in two weeks’ time, as the Spanish side travel to Anfield for the reverse fixture.
