Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has taken a rather silly dig at Liverpool after their 1-0 win over the European Champions.
Atletico were the better side after the first leg which they won 1-0 thanks to some incredible defending. However, the second leg remains, that too at Anfield.
And Cerezo has taken a dig at the legendary stadium.
“He who strikes first strikes hardest,” a delighted Cerezo said at a presentation for a new signing at Atletico’s women’s team, via AS.
“To see our fans so committed to the team was amazing. It was absolutely spectacular. Anfield is a great stadium but it’s old. It probably wouldn’t pass the UEFA inspection if it had to do it.”
“According to the media, a week ago we were dead and buried and now we are very much alive,” continued Cerezo.
“They had gone 30 games unbeaten and people were saying they are the best team in the world.
“We are happy with the result but we still have another game to go. But we have rediscovered ourselves and that is the best news.”
Let us hope the sake of Cerezo, Anfield does not come crashing down on them on 11 March.
