Neymar claims that referee Bjorn Kuipers was disrespectful at the PSG draw in Napoli

Neymar called for the punishment of a high-ranking UEFA referee after claiming he "has something he should not have" at the draw for the Paris Saint Germain Champions League draw with Napoli.

The Brazilian was shown a yellow card by referee Bjorn Kuipers when PSG were denied victory by Lorenzo Insigne's 62nd minute.

Despite a good away spot, Neymar remained furious after the final whistle after tormenting experienced Kuipers officials with whom he rowed at the 2018 World Cup.

Previously, Kuipers had asked Neymar to shut up after a penalty awarded to the Brazilian was lifted thanks to the use of VAR during Brazil's 2-0 win over Costa Rica.

Amd Neymar was still angry after the couple's last run.

"The referee told me something he should not have," Neymar said. "It was irreverent.

"I do not want to repeat what he said to me, but somebody should do something from the top."

Neymar was booked out in the second half of the break when he made a free kick with team-mate Marco Verratti. It is not clear whether the alleged incident occurred during his or her booking or at another time in the game.

NO-NONSENSE REF WORTH £ 11.5MILLION

Known as a tough referee, Bjorn Kuipers came to the fore on the global stage when he called on Neymar to "shut up" at the 2018 World Cup.

After initially sanctioning Brazil, he told Neymar that thanks to VAR technology, she was overturned by a dive by the Brazilian star.

When he was given the yellow card, Neymar's protest received an abrupt order to "silence" the 45-year-old, who also gestured to the star to talk too much.

Kuipers Background – he is a self-made multimillionaire whose wealth was estimated at £ 11.5 million in 2016, thanks to his Jumbo supermarket chain in his home country of Holland.

The Englishman Jordan Henderson felt his anger later in the tournament, as his fierce protests met with an angry rebuke.

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

"On the court we are asked to show respect for the referees. We should get the same. "

It remains to be seen whether PSG will file an official lawsuit against Kuipers, who has been FIFA referee since 2006.

At the 2018 World Cup Kuipers decided in the 2-0 victory against Costa Rica against Brazil, when Neymar was apparently fouled.

However, the decision was reversed using Neymar's VAR technology and official dive, leading to protests from the world's most expensive player.

However, Kuipers furiously rejected him, told him to shut up and told him he was talking too much.

The Dutchman took over the Champions League final in 2014 and this year's Europa League final between Marseille and Atletico Madrid.

In the meantime, Napoli moved with Liverpool's group leader Liverpool to a 1-1 draw against PSG.

After the surprise 2-0 defeat of the Reds at Red Star Belgrade last Tuesday, both teams wanted to win the chance to qualify for the knockout stages.

PSG, who are only one point behind third place, took the lead in the first half through defender Juan Bernat.

After the restart, however, Napoli rallied, forcing Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon to a series of savings before Insigne finally extended the penalty spot.

However, the Serie A team could not summon a winner, as Mbappe had a late chance for the visitors.
