You can find the news about Borussia Dortmund from the previous day here.
Borussia Dortmund is out of the Champions League, but did well against the big favorites Manchester City in the two 1: 2 defeats. Especially since you weren’t necessarily lucky in the decisions of the referees in both games: In the first leg Jude Bellingham was denied a goal, on Wednesday evening the penalty whistle against Emre Can was at least controversial.
Alfie Haaland, the father of Dortmund’s star striker Erling Haaland, saw it that way. “Well done, City. Congratulations,” he tweeted after the final whistle. And added: “But a few strange referee decisions in the two games.” On Thursday morning the Tweet already liked over 15,000 times.
The Dortmund protagonists saw it similarly: “At the referee training courses it is very clear that heading one’s arm is not punishable. I put it this way: We weren’t very lucky with the decisions in the two games,” complained coach Edin Terzic . “I know 100 percent that I first touched the ball with my head and then the ball came into my hand and I think the rules say that it is not a penalty,” said Emre Can. Here are the voices and reactions to the game.
BVB, News: Alfie Haaland complains about “strange referee decisions”
Borussia Dortmund failed with two 1: 2 defeats against Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals. The theses on the end of BVB can be found here: Why Dortmund needs a new goalkeeper – and what Emre Can is missing as a leading player.
Ewald Lienen tackled the decision to whistle penalties for ManCity even more sharply than Haaland senior. “We have interpretations that are insane,” said the long-time Bundesliga coach Sky: “These whole hand situations are ridiculous stories for me that decide games, championships. That’s silly!”
Dietmar Hamann saw it similarly in the Sky studio: “The video evidence was introduced to make things fairer. If such decisions are not reversed, then I don’t know whether the video evidence has a future. Today was a scandalous decision. The Dortmunders was played very badly today. “
The U23 of BVB have signed Berkan Taz for the coming season. Dortmund announced on Wednesday. The 22-year-old winger comes free of charge from SC Verl and has signed a one-year contract.
