Jurgen Klopp has bemoaned PSG’s play-acting antics which disrupted the game at the Parc de Princes – saying it was ‘not cool’.
Neymar, particularly, was throwing himself to the floor at every opportunity, and the Polish referee was random at the best of times in Paris.
Klopp told LiverpoolFC.com: “The number of interruptions in the game just was not cool. I said it a few times: two times in a row we won the fair-play table in England and tonight we looked like butchers when you look at the yellow cards we had.
“If the ref lets it happen then you have to deal with it as a team.”
Liverpool need to bounce back from the defeat and move on quickly, but it is frustrating nonetheless.
It shouldn’t have been a surprise, though – Neymar and co are always rolling around and crying foul.
