Mohamed Sissoko believes Atletico Madrid's 'legs will be shaking' when they take to Anfield for the second leg of their Champions League clash with Liverpool as the former midfielder revealed to Sportsmail his thoughts on ex-team-mate Paul Pogba.
The 35-year-old represented a total of 13 clubs during his 17-year career and joined Liverpool in the summer of 2005 after the club tasted European glory when they lifted the Champions League trophy in Istanbul.
And despite his former club suffering a one-goal deficit heading into their second leg against Diego Simeone's side, Sissoko believes that the Spaniards will not be able to handle the Anfield atmosphere.

'I think Jordan Henderson did well to say that in the second leg it will be more difficult for the Spaniards,' Sissoko exclusively told Sportsmail. 'I played a semifinal between Liverpool and Chelsea at Anfield: the opponents' legs were shaking.
'It is a unique stadium, Liverpool a unique club. Atletico Madrid perhaps does not know what it will find in England, it cannot even imagine it. The strength of Anfield is not comparable, the fans feel inside the locker room as if they were outside the door.'
Speaking about the six-time European champions, the Malian spoke of the importance of Englishmen Henderson and James Milner as the 'masters of life' in Jurgen Klopp's side.
