Diego Simeone’s son Giovanni breaks down in tears and kisses Champions League tattoo after scoring in opener as Napoli rip Liverpool apart


Diego Simeone’s son Giovanni was overwhelmed with emotion as he completed a first-half destruction of Liverpool in Napoli.

Napoli ran rings around the Reds for a 3-0 half-time lead, sending shockwaves through Jurgen Klopp’s men who were in disbelief.

Simeone couldn’t believe his first Champions League goal

A James Milner handball gave former Liverpool target Piotr Zielinski the opener before Arsenal-linked Victor Osimhen took Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez to the cleaners.

Ex-Fulham man Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa then made it two after a lavish move but Napoli were far from finished for half-time.

With Liverpool on the rocks, the 45-minute rout then ended when Simeone easily netted his first Napoli goal, falling to the ground in tears.

The striker also kissed his arm, where he has a tattoo of the Champions League logo which he got when he was just 13 years old.

The 27-year-old striker joined Hellas Verona in the summer and was clearly delighted to have reached the top, just like his father who manages Atletico Madrid.

It was Simeone’s first game and goal in the Champions League, who eventually made his way to Europe’s top flight after leaving South America in 2016.
