The German Football Authority has started investigations on England international, Jude Bellingham comment against referee, Felix Zwayer after a defeat to Bayern Munich.
The sensational England international, who is 18,was puzzled over the appointment of Zwayer, regarding his six-month ban for a fit-solving scandal in 2005. Zwayer rejected Dortmund`s appeals for a penalty earlier after which he gave their opponents a spot-kick for a Mats Humme’ls handball. Robert Lewandowski scored the penalty to secure victory for Bayern.
Speaking to Viaplay, Bellingham stated:
“You give a referee, that has match fixed before, the biggest game in Germany. What do you expect?”
“For me, it wasn’t [a penalty]. He [Hummels] is not even looking at the ball and he’s fighting to get it and it hits him,” added Bellingham.
“You can look at a lot of the decisions in the game.”
Bayern`s win in Der Klassiker on Saturday moved them four points above Dortmund at the summit of the Bundesliga table.
The DFB control committee have written to Bellingham and requested him to touch upon his statements “as quickly as possible”. Once Bellingham’s reaction has been evaluated, the control committee will determine what motion to move. However, the sports director of Dortmund, Michael Zorc has reassured the teen sensation of 100% support by the club
Dortmund Chief Executive Hans-Joachim Watzke added:
“To be clear, Jude was not spreading lies, but what happened in the past.
“This statement shouldn’t have been, but I don’t see anything untrue there. I don’t expect that to have any consequences for Jude. “
