Liverpool’s Didi Hamann Furious After Penalty Mix-up in Borussia Dortmund Game

Didi Hamann, the former Liverpool midfielder, has strongly criticized the decision to overturn Borussia Dortmund’s penalty against Borussia Monchengladbach.

In a game where Dortmund midfielder Marcel Sabitzer had already netted two goals for his team, he was denied what seemed to be a hat-trick opportunity when his penalty was unexpectedly overturned by the referee. Despite successfully converting the penalty, the decision was swiftly rescinded, denying Dortmund a second spot-kick in the match.

Expressing his dismay, Hamann conveyed his frustration to Sky Germany, stating, “They’re playing us all for fools. You can whistle a penalty, but you don’t have to. That means if you whistle a penalty, it has to stand.

Then it takes three and a half minutes until the decision is reversed. Then I ask myself: What are they doing for three and a half minutes? I don’t understand that and I don’t understand why the referee doesn’t want to comment afterwards.”

Fortunately for Dortmund, the overturned decision did not alter the outcome of the match, as they secured a 2-1 victory. Edin Terzic’s side now find themselves level on points with RB Leipzig, striving to break into the top four by the end of the season.

Looking ahead, Dortmund faces the second leg of the Champions League tie against Atletico Madrid, trailing 2-1 after the first leg.

Following European action, they will host Bundesliga leaders Bayer Leverkusen next weekend. However, Dortmund will be without Karim Adeyemi for that fixture, as he was sent off in the 55th minute against Monchengladbach.
