Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp scolded fans reaching out for a handshake before Wednesday’s defeat to Atlético Madrid as coronavirus continues to spread.
Coming out of the tunnel for the Champions League match at Anfield, Klopp responded angrily to supporters’ attempts at physical contact.
Leaving nothing to chance, the German even swerved a high-five from his counterpart Diego Simeone and turned it into an elbow-bump.
Trailing 1-0 from the first leg, his Reds side looked to have turned the tie on its head as Roberto Firmino made it 2-0 on the night in extra time.
However, they then conceded three goals – one from former Chelsea forward Álvaro Morata – to exit the competition at the round of 16 stage.
