During their 2-0 Champions League defeat to Liverpool at Anfield on Wednesday, Atletico Madrid players targeted Sadio Mane with hard tackles and sought to provoke a reaction to get the Senegalese sent off. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp obviously felt it was wise to remove the forward, who scored the second goal for his team, from the match at halftime.
🗣 “I hated it more than you can imagine. We all saw what some Madrid players did. I didn’t like it.”
