Jurgen Klopp backs Neymar over World Cup antics

Jurgen Klopp backs Neymar over World Cup antics

A role he should have no worries about undertaking, Salah could switch from the flank and it could see Xherdan Shaqiri handed his first start of the season, as he can join Sadio Mane on the wings with that duo providing Salah with the service, and Mane and Salah can interchange with each other to upset the PSG defensive line.

"We don't go for him against us". He already had an injury - everybody could see that.

"We'll try to avoid passes to him". That's a completely normal reaction because players are really going for him.

"I saw a few games at the World Cup and I know a few people were talking about things like that, when it looked like he made a bit more of the situation than it was", said Klopp.

The Brazilian attacker was forced off during the Reds 2-1 Premier League win over Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley on Saturday after sustaining an eye injury in a freak collision with Jan Vertonghen.

Security Council sanctions resolutions to prevent North Korea from developing nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles. The Korean War ended in 1953 with an armistice, not a peace treaty, and both sides remain technically at war.

"In football, and for me sometimes it's hard, we have to understand that there are things that can't be explained". It's good news that it will be close.

Klopp said that forwards Dominic Solanke and Divock Origi were both ruled out for the visit of PSG due to injuries picked up on Sunday playing for the club's Under-23 team.

Asked if Firmino would be available to take on the French side, Klopp said: "He couldn't play today, no chance, but we are hoping tomorrow".

PSG coach, Thomas Tuchel will welcomes forwards, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar, who has scored in every game this season for the Parisians back into their side after both were rested at the weekend, while Angel Di Maria and Julian Draxler are likely to sit on the bench for the clash.

"I knew he was a very good football player but actually his technical ability is a level that is probably better than I thought, if that was possible".
