Jude Bellingham hit referee Felix Zoer’s performance in Borussia Dortmund’s 3-2 loss to Bayern Munich.
Dortmund were frustrated after Zuer rejected their calls for a penalty kick, only to award Bayern one penalty kick for Mats Hummels’ handball.
Robert Lewandowski stepped in and scored what turned out to be a winner against his former club, in front of a small crowd at Signal Iduna Park.
This is Bellingham Via Play After the match: “I gave the referee who arranged a match before, the biggest match in Germany, what do you expect?
“For me, that wasn’t the case [a penalty]. The [Hummels] Don’t even look at the ball and he’s fighting to get it and kick it.
“You can see a lot of decisions in the game.”
Zoer, who was suspended for six months from the German Football Association in 2005 after the match-fixing scandal, has been heavily criticized by the hosts, but Bellingham still faces charges over his comments.
Dortmund coach Marco Rose was sent to the stands after criticizing Bayern’s penalty, which came after the VAR review in the 77th minute.
In defense of his decisions, Zuwer said Sky GermanyIt was a standard corner kick.
“In the game I see it as a touch of Hummels. The question for me was: Is the arm extended off the body or not? In real time, it wasn’t clear if his arm was going towards the ball.
“I checked it with [VAR officials] In Cologne, the position of the arms was then examined.
The video assistant did an evaluation of himself and said Hummels had his arm sticking out of the body in an abnormal position.
“In the end, he clearly directed the ball with his elbow and I decided it was a penalty.”
Earlier in the second half, Dortmund captain Marco Reus fell into the penalty area after a challenge from Lucas Hernandez, but the VAR signal was not received on the occasion.
“It was upper-body contact, which is permissible even at high speeds,” Zwer added.
“The situation is not in black and white, I decided not to impose a penalty because of my visual line.”
