English midfielder Jude Bellingham questioned the appointment of Felix Zwayer as referee for Borussia Dortmund’s huge 3-2 defeat to Bayern Munich on Saturday.

Zwayer rejected Dortmund’s calls for a penalty kick before giving their rivals a spot kick for a Mats Hummels handball. The prolific Robert Lewandowski then stepped up to score the Bayern winner against his old club at Signal Iduna Park.

And after the match, the 18-year-old Zwayer was knocked out, who was ruled out for six months by the German Football Association after being involved in a match-fixing scandal in 2005.

“You give a referee who has played solid before, the biggest match in Germany, what do you expect?” Bellingham told Viaplay.

“For me it was not [a penalty]. Hi [Hummels] does not even look at the ball and he struggles to get it and it hits him.

“You can look at many of the decisions in the game.”

Dortmund coach Marco Rose received a warning for his angry reaction when his team was denied a penalty. He was then given a red card for another warning for his protests after Bayern’s leaders were awarded theirs in the 77th minute after a lengthy VAR review.

Dortmund captain Marco Reus went down in the field after a challenge with Lucas Hernandez in the 54th minute. Afterwards, Reus said Zwayer should have seen it again on the VAR screen.

“When you watch the replay, it looks really bad,” Reus said. “It’s a shame he did not report it.”
