Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc accused Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar of 'acting' after Wednesday's Champions League clash between the two sides.

Dortmund's Emre Can was shown a straight red card towards the end of the game, which saw PSG advance to the quarter finals with a 2-0 win, after he pushed the Brazilian international to the ground.

But according to Zorc, Neymar exaggerated his reaction.

"We know that Neymar is a good actor. He showed that today," the BVB boss told Sky after the game.

Dortmund coach Lucien Favre also criticized the decision and said he felt Can's red card was undeserved.

"It was too harsh, almost ridiculous," Favre said.
