Diving and playacting has unfortunately become part of the modern game, and it was something that irked Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp on Wednesday night.

The German coach believed that plenty of Paris Saint-Germain players went to ground too easily and also took far too long to rise to their feet during the Champions League encounter at Parc des Princes.

Klopp expressed his frustration to reporters after the match, which ended in a 2-1 defeat for Liverpool.

Neymar and Thiago Silva were among the players guilty of over-exaggerating fouls, while Marco Verratti was lucky not to receive a red card for a high foot on Joe Gomez.

Klopp was not alone in his criticism of the PSG stars, as plenty of Liverpool fans took to Reddit to blast their antics.

The Merseyside outfit now sit third in Group C, but they can still qualify for the last 16 with a 1-0 win over Napoli at Anfield.

However, if the Italian outfit score, Liverpool will need to win by two clear goals to progress.
