Borussia Dortmund did not get beyond a draw in the round of 16 of the Champions League. Mats Hummels no longer understands the world. He criticizes the referee massively. BVB advisor Sammer even takes a swipe at Uefa.

It was like so many times in this game, this time in the 54th minute. PSV Eindhoven dominated the action, Borussia Dortmund seemed too passive again. The build-up game was flawed, the ball was lost immediately, and the relief didn’t last.

Borussia’s defense chief Mats Hummels had to iron things out every now and then, including in this scene. When he hit the ball during a tackle and also Eindhoven’s offensive player Malik Tillmann, the referee awarded a penalty. Much to Hummels’ displeasure, his decision was also confirmed by the video referee. Luuk de Jong didn’t care, the PSV captain coolly and flatly converted the penalty into the corner for his 28th goal of the season in all competitions.

But it was controversial, especially from Dortmund’s perspective. Hummels reported after the game, visibly upset, that Tillmann “couldn’t stop grinning, they were all laughing their heads off at Eindhoven for minutes and grinning at me.” Tenor: a penalty gift, thank you very much. That’s how Hummels wanted it to be.

“Zero percent penalties,” says Hummels

It was the goal to make it 1-1, the final score we deserved after Dortmund’s Donyell had given his former club a flattering lead (24′). But Hummels was of the opinion that the game didn’t have to end like that – or even should.

“Zero percent penalties. I slide in, play the ball clearly, and then catch it just a little bit. But we’re in football, sorry. Tillmann just falls afterwards because he knows he has made a mess of the situation – and he grins. We’re in the round of 16, so you have to expect the highest level from the referees.” It was the “second ridiculous penalty after the Paris game,” complained Hummels: “I don’t understand the referees at the moment.”

At the broadcaster Amazon Prime Video, the former top German referee Wolfgang Stark was appointed to the panel of experts to clarify the crime (or not?). He spoke of a “very tricky situation for the referee”. He admitted to Hummels, who was standing next to him in this round, that he “plays the ball first with his right foot and long leg”. But Hummels also took a big risk with the tackle and hit Tillmann “with the other foot, the so-called ‘drag leg’. That’s why you can give the penalty.”

Hummels dismissed Stark’s comments as “an explanation that can only come from the rule book, not from professional football. Zero penalties. ‘Dragging leg’ … after I played the ball three minutes before.” They are on the completely wrong path and he unfortunately believes that the video referee made the referees worse.

Matthias Sammer also thought so, it was an adventurous penalty decision, but he definitely sided with Hummels. Sammer was in Eindhoven in two capacities. On the one hand, he is an advisor to BVB, especially for club boss Hans-Joachim Watzke. On the other hand, he is also an Amazon Prime Video expert. First of all, he emphasized not to “wear club glasses”. “But,” Sammer began and it became a general settlement, “a referee has to decide for the football. He must consult the rules when making clear decisions. But this situation does not justify a penalty in the knockout competition in the sense of football.”

“That’s a catastrophe! What kind of people do they use?”

Sammer then became fundamental, he booked it under “point two”. “Point two” from his point of view was that “there are too many bad decisions against the German team. I appeal that we need to have more personalities on the committees internationally and state things clearly. We have to stand up to people again and not put up with it.” Borussia Dortmund alone, he added, had “received their sixth questionable penalty” in the past two years.

It’s time “we attack UEFA.” Also those responsible for appointing the referees. What kind of job do they do? That’s a catastrophe! What kind of people do they employ? This isn’t a trial-and-error situation. You can’t do that when it’s about being or not being in a sporting sense.”

Hummels then admitted that his team had made life on the pitch difficult for themselves. His conclusion – beyond the controversial penalty – for the second leg on March 13th in Dortmund: “If we act better with the ball, we will go further. We should have had a lot more calmness on the ball. We gave him away far too easily when things got a bit hectic. We are too easily infected by the atmosphere. I saw a very beatable Eindhoven here. A team that is more controlled, strategic and dominant with the ball will win here.”
