"The referee told me something he should not have - it was disrespectful", Neymar said after his side's Champions League game in Naples.

"Honestly, I do not look at that", he said, when asked about the Football Leaks revelations. However, somebody high up should do something.

"He can not be as disrespectful as he was with me", Neymar added.

"But the way he has treated the players showed a lack of respect. We should get the same in return".

FW Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, NR - Sent on at the death to add an extra attacking element, he barely got on the ball in the short time he was on.

During stoppage time, Neymar received a yellow card for arguing with Kuipers before taking a free-kick and the Brazilian had to be pulled away from confronting the referee by Kylian Mbappe.

But despite picking up a good away point, Neymar was left furious after the final whistle following an altercation with experienced official Kuipers whom he rowed with at the 2018 World Cup.

After initially awarding a penalty to Brazil, he informed Neymar that it was being overturned thanks to VAR technology due to a dive by the Brazilian star.

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.

After four games each, Liverpool and Napoli have six points in Group C with PSG on five and Red Star Belgrade on four. Lorenzo Insigne stepped up and smashed his shot into the bottom left-hand corner past veteran keeper Gigi Buffon.

"But we will accept. VAR is needed as quickly as possible".

Thomas Tuchel has confirmed legendary goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon will make his first Champions League appearance in a PSG shirt. "We lost two points because of refereeing errors".
