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.
