'The penalty was a joke!' - Nagelsmann accuses Di Maria of diving in RB Leipzig defeat at PSG


Julian Nagelsmann RB Leipzig 2019-20

RB Leipzig head coachJulian Nagelsmann has slammed the decision that led to PSG's penalty in his side's 1-0 defeat, saying it was a "joke" while also accusing Angel Di Maria of diving.

Neymar stepped up and converted from the spot after 11 minutes and thatgoal would hold up, as the Ligue 1 champions earned a 1-0 win over Leipzig.

It was a crucial victory for PSG, who moved up to second in Group H, level on points with Leipzig who are third. Both clubs sit three points behind group leaders Manchester United.

Nagelsmann was clearly unhappy with the manner in which the home side earned their penalty on Tuesday, saying the decision was not acceptable.

"I don't think Paris had a real chance in the game and the penalty was a joke,"Nagelsmann fumed to Sky Germany.

"That decision at Champions League level –that's really sad. That was a dive, there was zero contact. VAR was probably watching another game.

"Sometimes nuances make the difference and in the end it would have been deserved if we had rewarded ourselves. Now we are holding worse cards in the group, we have to win our two games and hope that Paris doesn't succeed."

Speaking to RMC Sport after the match, PSG head coach Thomas Tuchel expressed his relief to have come away with three points after he entered the game under intense pressure.

“We needed a win and now we have a win," Tuchel said."It was a very difficult game."

Tuchel then hit out at suggestions that his side weren't up to standarddespite the win, insisting his team's togetherness carried them through the match.
