Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is not happy after receiving six yellow cards during Wednesday's 2-1 Champions League loss against Paris Saint Germain.

"We looked like Butchers' Jurgen Klopp complains of PSG's 'playacting' during the French club's 2-1 victory over Liverpool in the Champions League.

The Parc des Princes contest was marked by a number of interruptions with last season's finalists Liverpool committing 20 fouls.

While addressing the media, Klopp said, "The number of interruptions in the game was just not cool."

"Two times in a row we won the fair play, what is it table, in England. And tonight we like butchers when you at the yellow cards we had," he added.

"So it was clever of PSG, of Neymar, specially him yeah, but a lot of other players went down like it was really something serious."

Defeat left the English club's hopes of reaching the last 16 hanging in the balance.

Liverpool are third in Group C on six points, two behind PSG and three behind Napoli, who they face at Anfield in the final round of matches on Dec. 11.

Juergen Klopp's side need a 1-0 win, or a victory by a two-goal margin or more, to progress.
