Superstar player, Neymar Junior, has attacked referee, Bjorn Kuipers, following his side’s 1-1 draw with Napoli, claiming that the referee was ‘disrespectful’ towards him.
Juan Bernat opened the scoring for PSG but Napoli equalized in the second half through Lorenzo Insigne.
Neymar was shown a yellow card during the stoppage time for arguing with Kuipers before taking a free-kick, and he was pulled away from confronting the referee by Kylian Mbappe.
“I don’t care about the mistakes that can happen,” Metro UK quoted Neymar as saying after the match.
“The referee is a human being and can make mistakes, even clear ones like the penalty.
“The way he treats players is disrespectful.
“What he told me lacked respect, that’s why I lost control and told him a few words.
“He has to respect the players. It’s not because he has a whistle or a card that he is above everyone.
“I condemn him for the way he treated me. I hope the people above him can do something about it.”
