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

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

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

Former Fulham man Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa then made it two after a sumptuous move, but Napoli were far from finished for the half.

With Liverpool on the rocks, the 45 minute rout was then completed when Simeone turned in his first Napoli goal with ease, falling to the floor 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.

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

It was Simeone’s first game and first goal in the Champions League, finally making his way to Europe’s elite after leaving South America in 2016.
