It would be fair to describe Diego Simeone as a “combative” character both as a player and a manager, while he does seem to have a hard time accepting defeat in a gracious manner.
He has previous for having a meltdown when Atleti fall short on the European stage, and Liverpool fans will love what they saw at the FT whistle tonight as a beaming Jurgen Klopp waved him off:

Simeone runs off down the tunnel at the final whistle without shaking Klopp's hand. Klopp waves in his direction. #LFC

Even if he is disappointed the running away isn’t a great look, but if anything this probably makes the victory even sweeter for Liverpool tonight.
