Diego Simeone's Controversial Behavior in Atletico Madrid's Champions League Draw with Celtic

+

Diego Simeone, the manager of Atletico Madrid, found himself embroiled in another post-match controversy following a disappointing 2-2 draw with Celtic in the Champions League. The unexpected result left Simeone visibly frustrated and led to a lackluster exchange with former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers, reminiscent of his previous encounter with Jürgen Klopp. Wednesday night's match against Celtic was one that many had anticipated Atletico Madrid would win comfortably. However, the Scottish opponents managed to hold Simeone's team to a draw. As the final whistle sounded, Simeone's evident disappointment was directed towards the match officials. This left Brendan Rodgers waiting for acknowledgment, and when Simeone eventually turned to face him, he only managed a quick slap on the hand before storming off down the tunnel. This behavior might be familiar to Liverpool supporters, as they had previously witnessed a similar gesture from Simeone in recent European encounters. The most notable incident occurred when Jürgen Klopp's Liverpool secured a 3-2 victory against Atletico Madrid during a group stage match at the Wanda Metropolitano in October 2021. Following the game, Simeone notably snubbed Klopp's attempt at a post-match handshake, sparking a discussion about sportsmanship. TCC Plus

Hopefully now Celtic, fingers crossed, can do this with minimum fuss, although today is the 90th day that we have went without a permanent manager since Neil Lennon’s departure, so I won’t hold my breath on that.
