Neymar Is Not Happy After Clashing With 'Disrespectful' Referee

Neymar Is Not Happy After Clashing With 'Disrespectful' Referee

PSG striker Neymar has hit out at referee Bjorn Kuiper following their 1-1 draw with Napoli last night in the Champions League.

The result leaves the French champions third in Group C, but the Brazilian was unhappy with the way he was spoken to during the game.

While waiting to take a free, Neymar was booked in the 90th minute after he motioned towards the referee, seemingly unhappy at how close the Napoli players were. The pair exchanged words and after being booked he sarcastically applauded the ref.

 

Post-match, he claimed that he was unhappy with how he was spoken to: "The referee told me something he shouldn't and it was disrespectful."

Per ESPN, PSG chairman and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaifi also hit out at match-day officials when he claimed his side "lost two points because of refereeing errors."

The draw means that Neymar and his team-mates will need a result when they face Liverpool at home later this month if they are to maintain hopes of reaching the knock-out stages.
