Borussia Dortmund coach Favre: Milinkovic-Savic looked like he was in swimming pool

Borussia Dortmund coach Lucien Favre branded Sergej Milinkovic-Savic a diver after last night's 1-1 draw with Champions League opponents Lazio.

The Serb went down under a Nico Schulz challenge on the very edge of the box and Ciro Immobile converted the penalty, after a Raphael Guerreiro opener.

"We only drew because the referee awarded a non-existent penalty," Favre told Sky Deutschland.

“Of course it was a dive, he looked like he was in a swimming pool. It's ridiculous, you cannot identify what foul Schulz has made there.

“In any case, we are through, and that's that."
