Jude Bellingham in hot water after comments regarding German referee

Golden Boy runner up and one of England’s brightest young prospects is under investigation from the German FA after his comments regarding referee Felix Zwayer.

The Borussia Dortmund midfielder questioned the appointment of the ref for the biggest match in German football, Der Klassiker.

Zwayer has been previously found guilty of match fixing in 2005 and received a six-month ban for his actions.

Speaking to Viaplay Bellingham said: “You give a referee, that has match fixed before, the biggest game in Germany. What do you expect?”

The game finished 3-2 to Bayern Munich, solidifying their position at the top of the Bundesliga and moving four points clear of second place Dortmund.

Bellingham was left stunned by some of the referee’s controversial decisions which hugely effected the outcome of the game.

“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.”

Teammate Erling Haaland was also critical of the referee but Jude Bellingham has found himself under investigation from the German FA as well as the German police force after a criminal complaint was filed.

The former Birmingham midfielder now could face a suspension from playing according to German outlet Bild.

Dortmund are said to be appealing this strongly and with good reason.

The 18 year old is a huge player for Marco Rosa’s side and losing the England international to suspension could be the final nail in the coffin in what is already an ambitious title charge for BVB.
