Atletico Madrid coach Simeone delivers response to Klopp's style criticism

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has delivered a one word response to critisicm from Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp over their playing style.

Klopp again declared he wasn't a fan of Simeone's football at yesterday's Champions League presser.

Ahead of tonight's game in Madrid, Simeone was asked what he would say to Klopp in defence of his side's style of football.

Simeone replied: "Nothing."

The Argentinean did also elaborate on the Reds' quality, as well as that of their Premier League rivals.

" Chelsea, City and Liverpool are going through a wonderful moment," he said.

"It's nice to see all three of them play.

"Liverpool work very well, high pressure, backlash, take advantage of the spaces.

"The return of (Virgil) van Dijk allows them to return to their defensive level. I do not expect anything other than a very intense Liverpool that we will try to harm.

"To compete against Liverpool it is clear that you have to balance in intensity. And then look for our options in the game."
