Liverpool Legend Slams ‘Embarrassing’ Neymar & PSG

PSG boosted their hopes of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League knockout stage after defeating the Reds 2-1 on Wednesday evening.

Jurgen Klopp expressed his disappointment with Neymar for going down too easily, and now the former Reds defender has laid into the PSG Stars.

“It was very frustrating. With Neymar it was even in the first half. We are talking about one of the best players in the world but watching him was embarrassing,” he told Viasport.

“If he continues that through his whole career he’s going to be remembered for that rather than the great player that he is.

“It leaves a sour taste in the mouth and I have no sympathy for the PSG players if Klopp is frustrated with them, that’s understandable.

“Even Thiago Silva, the captain, a centre-back, rolling around in the corner at the end holding his face – this is a great team, PSG, with some great players, they don’t need to resort to these tactics, they should let the football do the talking.

“They should be embarrassed. I don’t know how they go back and speak to their families and wives in the players’ lounge. Rolling around on the floor like that, the only time you see that is children at kindergarten.”
