The Reds maintained their perfect start to the group stage of the 2021/22 Champions League with a 3-2 victory over the defending LaLiga champions on Tuesday night.

As soon as the final whistle sounded, Simeone ran straight down the tunnel and opted not shake the hand of Klopp, who was visibly annoyed with the Argentine tactician's actions.

"The situation is clear, I wanted to shake his hand, he didn't want it," Klopp told BT Sport after the match.

"He was reaction was for sure not right, mine was not too cool either but we are both emotional.

"When I see him next time we will shake hands, definitely. He was obviously angry, not with me, but the game, the world and stuff like this."

The Reds will host Los Rojiblancos in the return fixture at Anfield on Wednesday, 3 November, as Klopp's men look to secure a spot in the round of 16.
