Former Tottenham defender Kieran Trippier has warned his Atletico Madrid team-mates about the atmosphere that awaits them at Anfield on Wednesday night.
Liverpool lost the first leg of their Champions League last-16 clash against Atletico 1-0 after Saul Niguez’s early effort was enough for Diego Simeone’s side.
After being out injured, Trippier has appeared in Atletico’s recent matches against Villarreal, Espanyol and Sevilla as he looks for a starting berth on his return to England.
“Anfield is one of the best stadiums to play in. The fans are amazing, I have talked with my teammates about the atmosphere there,” Trippier said.
“They will try to be as intimidating as possible, but we have to go with a mentality to qualify. It will be complicated, but we are ready for the challenge. Our fans are very important, we hope to get the result we want.”
