Atletico Madrid's Marcos Llorente Trolls Liverpool With The Name Of His New Dog

Atletico Madrid's Marcos Llorente Trolls Liverpool With The Name Of His New Dog

In news that Liverpool supporters might not be best pleased with, Atletico Madrid midfielder Marcos Llorente has named his dog 'Anfield' after knocking the Reds out of the Champions League.

The former Real Madrid midfielder replaced Diego Costa from the bench early in the second half and completely turned the tie on its head.

He notched two goals and an assist in extra time as Atleti came back to win 4-2 on aggregate and progressed to the quarter finals.

And now, Llorente has marked the special occasion by naming his new pet after the stadium where he experienced a very special European night.

The Spaniard posted a picture of his dog on Instagram, accompanied with the caption: "Anfield watching the world go by."

Prior to his sublime double, Llorente had only scored three career goals and was gifted his first of the night on Merseyside when Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian got his clearance all wrong and allowed him to pounce.

He then struck another from outside the box just 167 seconds after Roberto Firmino had put the reigning European Champions 2-0 up with his first Anfield goal of the season in extra time.

Former Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata sealed a memorable win after being played through by Llorente on the counter.
