Atletico's Marcos Llorente has named his dog 'Anfield' after knocking Liverpool out of the CL

Liverpool FC v Atletico Madrid - UEFA Champions League Round of 16: Second Leg

Liverpool's Champions League defence came to a shocking end last month at the hands of Atletico Madrid.

Despite losing the first leg 1-0 in Spain, the Reds were still expected to do the business at Anfield.

However they were not able to prevail.

Jurgen Klopp's side dominated the opening 90 minutes but could only find a way past Jan Oblak once.

Liverpool took the lead in extra-time through Roberto Firmino, but then Marcos Llorente turned the tie on its head.

The 25-year-old had scored just once in his professional career prior to the game.

He was substituted on in the 56th minute and he went on to score a brace in extra-time to sink Liverpool.

It was, without doubt, the best moment of Llorente's career to date.


The Atletico midfielder will never forget that night at Anfield and, to show how much it meant to him, he's gone the extra mile.

That's because Llorente has done something that will be a daily remainder of that night.

He's name his dog 'Anfield'. Yep, that's right.

Llorente took to Instagram on Friday afternoon, uploading a picture of his dog looking out the window.

The image was then accompanied with the caption: 'Anfield watching life go by'.


Incredible s**thousery. Llorente became an instant hero when he notched that brace to ensure Atletico's passage to the Champions League quarter-finals.

He's just become even more admired by his own fans after celebrating that win by mocking the Reds.

The same can't be said for Liverpool fans, who no doubt won't be best pleased with Llorente naming his dog after their own stadium...
