Carragher: PSG players like children and should be embarrased

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has lashed out at PSG’s players over their play acting antics.

The French Champions beat Liverpool 2-1 in Paris last night in the Champions League. However, many of the headlines afterward surrounded the constant diving and histrionics of Neymar and some of his teammates.

Speaking after the game Carragher claimed he finds it hard to understand how some of these players can speak to their wives after acting so embarrassingly.

“It was very frustrating, I think with Neymar even in the first half,” Carragher told Viasport Fotball.

“We are talking about one of the best players in the world, but watching him tonight was embarrassing.

“If he continues that through his whole career, he’ll be remembered for that and not the great player that he is. It leaves a sour taste in the mouth.

“I have no sympathy for the PSG players, if Klopp is frustrated with them that’s understandable. I mean even Thiago Silva, a centre-back, was rolling around in the corner, holding his face.

“This is a great PSG team with some great players, they don’t need to resort to these tactics, they should let the football do the talking.

“You’re frustrated as a Liverpool supporter. [The PSG players] should be embarrassed. I don’t know how they go back and speak to the families and wives in the players lounge.

“Rolling around on the floor like that. The only time you see that is children at kindergarten.”
