Atletico Madrid super fan ‘shed tears’ at ‘overwhelming’ Liverpool atmosphere

Atletico Madrid’s Champions League over Liverpool left one super fan “overwhelmed” as he attended Anfield.

The Spanish side scored three goals in stoppage time for a 3-2 win against the holders.

Marcos Llorente’s brace and Alvaro Morata were able to celebrate their goals in front of 3,000 fans at Anfield.

And AS have reported how one man let emotion take over him at Anfield.

It explains how musician Pancho Varona realised March is the 50th anniversary of The Beatles splitting up.

On the day of the Champions League clash, he did the Beatles tour before being blown away by Anfield.

“I shed a couple of tears,” he said.

“Seeing that atmosphere is overwhelming for anyone.”

Liverpool’s chances of a treble were ruled out after being knocked out of the Champions League by Atletico and the FA Cup by Chelsea within a week.

And now their Premier League title is at risk due to the spread of coronavirus.

FA chief Greg Clarke suggested the rest of the season’s fixtures may not be played out as they combat COVID-19.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp released a statement on the club website about coronavirus’ impact on the sporting calendar.

He said: "I don’t think this is a moment where the thoughts of a football manager should be important, but I understand for our supporters they will want to hear from the team and I will front that.

"First and foremost, all of us have to do whatever we can to protect one another. In society I mean. This should be the case all the time in life, but in this moment I think it matters more than ever.

"I’ve said before that football always seems the most important of the least important things. Today, football and football matches really aren’t important at all.

"The message from the team to our supporters is only about your well-being. Put your health first. Don’t take any risk. Think about the vulnerable in our society and act where possible with compassion for them.

"Please look after yourselves and look out for each other."
