The back of Atletico Madrid, Kieran Trippier, imposed himself to defend the tactics of his team during the valiant victory of the Champions League against the holders of Liverpool. The Spanish side managed a finely organized game plan to win both legs of the tie and cancel Jurgen Klopp’s juggernaut, but was heavily disapproved for the way they appeared to kill the match.

Liverpool conquered both in the possession and in luck at Anfield as they chased a 1-0 deficit in the first leg, although their energetic forward play allowed Atleti to capitalize on the break and clinch victory dead – a tactic that Trippier has now accepted. Trippier collided with Liverpool many times during his days at Tottenham and was part of the broken-hearted team that lost the 2019 European final in Madrid.
“People have the perception that we are a defensive team, but I think they get too carried away with the way we played against Liverpool,” the English international told the Mirror.
Recognizing the powers of the Reds, Trippier, If you go there and find yourself face to face with Liverpool, you’re going to be beaten 6-0. I don’t know what people expect. You see experts complaining because we defended ourselves, but did they expect us to play attacking football, especially with Liverpool playing as they do now?
You have to go with a plan and we did it. We had to protect, but the most important thing is that we won. Atleti and Trippier have now reserved their places for the next round, although a haze of uncertainty surrounds the competition due to the interruption of football throughout Europe during the chaos of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
