Atletico Madrid president Cerezo has Liverpool pop: Old Anfield wouldn't pass technical controls!

Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has enjoyed a swipe at Champions League opponents Liverpool ahead of next month's away leg.

Atletico are in control of the Champions League round 16 tie thanks to a 1-0 first-leg win in Madrid on Tuesday.

Cerezo said, “Anfield is a big stadium, but it is old. It would not pass the technical controls!

"According to the press, a week ago we were crazy while now we are alive. They haven't lost in nearly 30 games, they say they are the best team in the world. We are happy with the results, but there is still one game left.

"We found each other again, this is the best news."
