"I think it made sense to make a few changes, a few we had to make and a few we wanted to", said Klopp. However, somebody high up should do something.

'He can not be as disrespectful as he was with me, ' Neymar added. "We lost two points for two errors of the referee".

"We know we have to win this game and we hope to have a good match to get a great result". Of course there is, there is certainly a penalty.
