Liverpool boss Klopp sends clear message to Atletico Madrid: Welcome to Anfield!

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has sent a message to Atletico Madrid after the Spaniards won the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.

Atleti secured a 1-0 victory thanks to an early goal from Saul Niguez.

It was a raucous crowd in Madrid and Klopp knows Atleti will face a similar atmosphere on Merseyside.

On getting booked in the second-half, Klopp said:"It was too much. I am pretty sure, was it a throw-in for us before the first goal? That doesn't help to stay calm. All human beings make mistakes.

"Welcome to Anfield. It is not over yet."
