Following his team’s 2-2 draw with Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last night, RB Leipzig coach Jesse Marsch said he believes officials tend to give preferential treatment to bigger clubs.

The American coach also accused referee Andreas Ekberg of wanting an autograph from PSG winger Neymar.

“I have the impression that referees decide in favor of the big teams instead of the small ones,” Marsch said at his post-game press conference (via Goal.com).

“It’s hard to get respect from the refs,” added Marsch, who was shown a yellow card in the first half for expressing his dissatisfaction with the referee’s decisions.

“It seemed as if the referee wanted to get an autograph from Neymar!”
