Neymar was even booked by Kuipers in that match, and the Paris Saint-Germain player was furious with the Dutchman again on Tuesday night after his side's 1-1 draw with Napoli.

Amd Neymar was left fuming after the pair's latest run-in. However, somebody high up should do something'.

Neymar was also restrained at one point by team-mate Kylian Mbappe as he appeared to have an angry exchange with the experienced Kuipers.

Not for the first time, Neymar has been involved in a row with Dutch referee Bjorn Kuipers.

However, after consultation with VAR he overturned his decision as the superstar had thrown himself to the ground unnecessarily.

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

'On the pitch, we are asked to show respect towards the referees.

It remains to be seen whether PSG will lodge an official complaint against Kuipers, who has been a Federation Internationale de Football Association listed referee since 2006.

The run-in is the latest between the pair, who also clashed at the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer when Brazil were taking on Costa Rica.

After being held to a disappointing draw to Red Star in their opening Champions League match, Napoli have bounced back in fine fashion, beating Liverpool and then coming very close to defeating PSG, before conceding a 90th minute equaliser.

The trip to Belgrade will not be easy, though, as Liverpool's shock 2-0 loss there on Tuesday proved.

PSG, who are just a point behind in third place, took the lead in first-half stoppage time through defender Juan Bernat.

Cavani spent three years with Napoli, scoring more than 100 goals in all competitions before signing with PSG.

The Serie A side, though, could not conjure a victor, with Mbappe firing a late chance wide for the visitors.
