Real Madrid left back Marcelo has drawn criticism for his fake dive against Wolfsburg in the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
The Brazilian defender appeared to kick and head-butt Maximilian Arnold in the chest, then threw himself to the ground after pretending he was hit in the face by the German midfielder.
His antics in Real Madrid's loss on Wednesday led to a yellow card to Arnold, who could miss the semifinals if he is booked again in next week's second leg and Wolfsburg advances.
Wolfsburg coach Dieter Hecking was upset after the match and reportedly had an angry exchange with Marcelo in the tunnel to the changing rooms.
He said Marcelo didn't ''need to do'' what he did.
