Atlético de Madrid qualified for the quarter-finals after winning at Old Trafford (0-1) and improving the result of the first leg (1-1). Although the atmosphere in the stands was fantastic, some Manchester United fans They tarnished it at the last minute.
Simeone ran into the locker room tunnel at the end of the match. When he was about to arrive, several fans threw objects at him from the stands. Among them, a glass of beer. The Argentine coach dodged them as best he could before getting to safety.
The bad loss was not exclusive to the English fans, but also to their coach. Ragnick, however, complained only verbally. “They’ve been playing like this for ten years. There was always someone on the ground. It’s his way of playing. It would have been important not to concede more than to score. Atlético de Madrid plays in the Champions League with that style of football and it’s not that easy.”
The unfortunate attitude of English fans will have to be examined by UEFA. Manchester United remains at the expense of the decision of the European entity to know if there is a sanction or not.
