Bayern Munich played a goalless draw away at the Anfield in the Champions League round of 16 on Tuesday.
After the game, Bayern boss Niko Kovac has admitted that Javi Martinez faked cramp to “waste time” in the game against Liverpool.
“We all know the drill. It’s close to the final whistle and you try to waste a bit of time,” Kovac told Sky (via TheSun).
“Javi has good performance data, meaning he couldn’t have even had a cramp. That’s all a bit of acting. Recently in Berlin, Kingsley Coman also pretended to have a cramp but he didn’t.
“We have to bring calmness in the game. They do it well, they have the experience for that.”
