Liverpool manager Klopp: I couldn't care less about how we beat Atletico Madrid!

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says he 'couldn't care less' about how his team beat Atletico Madrid at Wanda Metropolitano on Tuesday night.

The Reds went ahead 2-0 before a double from Antoine Griezmann tied the scores before half-time.

But Mohamed Salah scored from the penalty spot with 12 minutes remaining to seal a 3-2 victory for the visitors.

"They just won the balls and we didn't do the right stuff anymore," Klopp told reporters.

"We chose the easy pass but we needed to play between the lines. The last line was pretty deep.

"Then they came with wing-backs and midfielders and we stayed there instead of accelerating. The game was too slow and that was what they wanted. That was why the momemtum changed.

"I saw it and our penalty is a penalty. I think the other one is not a penalty but I didn't expect it. I think it's the right decision.

"The red card was for sure unlucky but it is a red card. A foot in the face. It can happen. It was a tough game. Honestly, how we win it, I couldn't care less! On a night like this, getting three points is really nice."
