Both Neymar and Mbappe are too lazy - John Barnes

Liverpool Legend John Barnes has tagged both Neymar and Mbappe Lazy and claims both players can't get into Liverpool's team under Jurgen Klopp.

It was a night where much was expected from PSG star-studded team and especially the duo of both Neymar and Mbappe. However, both were somehow missing in the game despite Mbappe getting a goal and John Barnes was not happy with their performance.

Liverpool defenders were able to overpower both players and the duo couldn't do much against the English side. However, Barnes claims but players were unable to do much because they are both lazy and they couldn't help their team.

During the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show earlier today Barnes reveal both players can't get into Liverpool team under Klopp and claim their style of play only suit PSG, Barcelona or Man City.

When asked if both Neymar and Mbappe could get into Liverpool's team, Barnes said: 'It depends who the manager is - not with Jurgen Klopp.'

'I saw the interview Klopp gave last night, he spoke about the defensive work of the whole team, meaning the front three as well.'

'A lot of people say Neymar is the best in the world, which may suit PSG or Man City or Barcelona.'

'But regardless of how good he is, there is no way he could suit Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp.'

'I was disappointed with Neymar and Mbappe,' Barnes added

'I thought they were so lazy when they didn't have the ball, they didn't help their team at all.'

'I thought it would be a game of our front three against their front three, and to a man, our players worked their socks off for 90 minutes with and without the ball - it was a fantastic performance by Liverpool.'

'PSG aren't going to pay for it in the French league, where Neymar and Mbappe don't track back and don't run around too much and still win comfortably, but that will probably work against PSG in the latter stages of the Champions League.'
