Liverpool fans have found themselves agreeing with manager Jurgen Klopp after Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti revealed what the German tactician thought of our Champions League second leg against Atletico Madrid.

Speaking to Corriere Dello Sport, the former AC Milan head coach confirmed that Klopp said that going ahead with the game in those conditions was a “criminal act”, and Ancelotti agreed with him.

The Reds were knocked out of the Champions League by Diego Simeone’s side after a 3-2 defeat at Anfield before football was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Should the Atletico game have taken place?

Yes

Yes

No

Fans of Atletico were not permitted to see games in their own stadium because of the illness, but 3,000 were allowed to fly to Merseyside to watch their team advance to the quarter-finals of the European Cup.

As a result, supporters appreciated what the Blues man had to say and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan echoed the words of Klopp by saying he was right, echoing the views of the Italian. While another agreed but conceded that Atletico deserved their victory.
