Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp said Neymar made his team look “look like butchers” in a 2-1 Champions League group stage defeat at Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night.
The Brazilian scored what turned out to be the winning goal of a fiery contest at the Parc des Princes, starting and finishing a counter attack for the hosts in the 37th minute.
With his reputation preceding him, Liverpool fans were angered by what they saw as playacting from the player who won a series of free kicks in the Group C clash.
Klopp’s side now face a deciding match against Napoli next month if they are to progress in the competition.
These were the best jokes as Neymar is the centre of attention in PSG 2-1 Liverpool:
Scouting neymar, heard he is a good actor.

Any game involving Neymar I find really difficult to watch without shouting ‘absolute twat’ every few mins at my tv. #PSGLIV

PSG’s physio has covered more yards than James Milner.

I really just want Van Dijk to grab Neymar by his neck, lift him up by a couple of feet and smash him into the ground. Id rather have that than us winning the CL.

Neymar has just been given a free kick for falling over after shooting. Genuinely.

Elite shithousery from Neymar. Has wasted nearly 6 minutes on his own.

I'm not always the most gracious in defeat but gotta hand it to Neymar. He proved so important for PSG's gameplan pic.twitter.com/lvAYLz9T2Y

Leonardo DiCaprio is at PSG vs Liverpool tonight, and he's still not the best actor in the stadium. pic.twitter.com/wblLGCQEH1

No complaints apart from PSG’s cheating.
