Champions League By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 29/11/2018

Paris Saint-Germain manager Thomas Tuchel has reacted to Jurgen Klopp’s claims about Neymar after the match against Liverpool in the Champions League.

Tuchel dismissed Klopp's claims of Neymar diving during the clash after his side 2-1 victory over the last year finalist.

The former Borussia Dortmund manager suggested that his fellow German was finding an excuse to put up when you lose a game of such magnitude and he told reporters after the clash: "When I lose a big game I am angry and always in a bad mood, and I will talk about other stuff to bring attention away from my team also. I hear Jurgen has his opinion and that's fine. I'm talking about the game.

"I don't feel it is such a big issue. We suffered a lot of fouls. You don't have to commit a lot of fouls, especially if you are 1-0 down. If you are 1-0 down then don't commit 10 fouls in the next 10 minutes.

"I didn't experience it this way around.

“If it is a big match and you lose then I am always in a bad mood. So if he was, then I understand. I know him very well and I don't take this personally.”

Paris Saint Germain will travel to Belgrade to play Crvena Zvezda in their last group stage match, a win will guarantee them a qualification to the next stage.
