Andrew Robertson criticizes Neymar for play-acting and time wasting

Andy Robertson has criticized Neymar for over-acting in PSG’s 2-1 win over Liverpool, as their hopes of reaching the Champions League knock out stages were denied,

“I suppose they were in the lead and they were looking to waste time. You can use gamesmanship, play-acting, you can use it all really,” Robertson, who had words with Neymar, told Sky Sports News.

“I would like to know how much time they wasted tonight. It’s frustrating when [Neymar] is falling like he is.

“It’s all part and parcel of his game and we needed to deal with that. We didn’t quite control our aggression.”Of course it was frustrating. But when you play against PSG you know it is something you are going to come up against especially with him. It wasn’t something we quite dealt with tonight.”

Liverpool need to beat Napoli 1-0 or by two clear goals so they’ll be able to reach the knockout rounds.
