Klopp furious with Neymar, reveals why Liverpool lost 

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, was furious with Paris Saint-Germain players especially Brazilian  Neymar, following their 2-1 defeat in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

The result dealt their hopes of progressing to the knockout stages of the competition a blow .

Juan Bernat and Neymar scored for hosts, before James Milner pulled one back from the spot before half time. But PSG held firm after the break with the help of some controversial tactics.

A number of the home team’s players received treatment during the game and Liverpool’s players often berated the officials as they believed they were time-wasting.

Liverpool conceded 20 fouls in the match and Klopp accused Neymar and his teammates of playacting.

He told beIN Sports: “We tried to change the game after half-time but you saw it… look, we lost, they scored two, we scored one.

“But so many interruptions in a game like this.

“Everyone knows what they want to do, especially what Neymar wants to do.

“They get 50 free-kicks. We look like butchers but we are a completely normal football team.

“They go down in every situation, it’s unbelievable. That was really hard to deal with and didn’t help us obviously.”

When pressed on whether Neymar’s antics during the game was a source of frustration, Klopp replied “I said what I had to say, that’s it” before storming off.

In a separate interview with BT Sport, Klopp added: “The start was like what we expected, it was very wild and intense and they took all the risks.

“They scored twice by winning the second ball. We still had to stay in the game, but as soon as we had a bit of control, you saw the game wasn’t decided.

“We tried everything but we didn’t have enough clear chances. We had two or three promising situations but with one or two decisions they would have been.”

Liverpool now need to beat Napoli at Anfield next month, to progress to the knockout stages of the Champions League.
