Marcos Laurent claims that his performance against Liverpool in the Champions League on the 16th changed his life and changed his career at Atletico Madrid.

After a 1-0 win over the Reds in the first quarter, Atletico went to Anfield in March to advance to the quarter-finals.

The strike in the first half of Giorgio Vignaldam made the overall score 1-1, with the teams entering extra time, where Liverpool took the lead through Roberto Firmino.

But at a dramatic turnaround, Laurent hit twice in the ninth minute to keep Atletico at bay, before helping Alvaro Morata’s final gas strike during a 3-2 (4-2 total) victory.

Prior to that match, Laurent had struggled to find a foothold with Atletico in June 2019 after transferring $ 35.9 million from rival Real Madrid.

But Laurent believes his two goals have boosted his position in Wanda Metropolitano, scoring three goals in seven La Liga games and paving the way for a strong start to the current campaign.

The 25-year-old said Tutomerkatov : “The competition at Anfield was a turning point in my career, and it certainly changed my life literally.

The 25-year-old says the Anfield encounter changed his life

“I always say, however, that in football you have to prove yourself every day. I know I had a great performance against Liverpool, but the important thing is to maintain the continuity of this performance over time.

“I’m succeeding. I’m very happy with what I’m doing.”

Laurent also responded that he named his new dog ‘Anfield’ after his heroic deeds at Mercedeside.

He added: “The dog belongs to my mother, not to me. She was really happy that day: my mother always followed me very affectionately, and a few months later when we gave her a dog, she decided to call it that.

“The brace against Liverpool gave them unforgettable emotions.”
