After the game between Borussia Dortmund and VfL Bochum, Tabea Kemme addressed a “Bayern taste” about the VAR. While Jan Aage Fjörtoft is outraged, Didi Hamann defends referee Sascha Stegemann.
BVB, News: Kemme alludes to “Bayern-Geschmäckle”.
The anger about referee Sascha Stegemann and video assistant Robert Hartmann has not yet subsided. Now the fact that Hartmann comes from the Allgäu and is therefore part of the Bavarian Football Association is causing a stir.
“The fact that he comes from the Allgäu offers a very, very large target. Again,” said sky-Expert Tabea Kemme. The thought behind it is clear: FC Bayern benefited from Dortmund’s 1-1 draw at VfL Bochum on Friday, so Hartmann could not theoretically be completely impartial.
“We have to pull the leash a bit tighter. We all have to sit down at a table and play with open cards, also when it comes to placing,” continued the former international.
Meanwhile, Kemme’s colleague Lothar Matthäus was upset that Hartmann was immediately put back into action as video assistant by the DFB in Hamburger SV’s 2-3 defeat in the second division at 1. FC Magdeburg on Saturday.
“I’ll take him out first! He’s also mentally scratched after this discussion,” complained Matthäus: “But today he’s being used again and making another decision that I can’t understand one hundred percent, where it wasn’t a clear wrong decision for me .”
The 43-year-old had asked referee Harm Osmers to watch a scene in which he had decided on a penalty for HSV. Osmers subsequently took the penalty back.

Former Bundesliga professional Jan Aage Fjörtoft was outraged by Stegemann’s decision not to punish the foul on Karim Adeyemi as such and not to whistle a penalty.

He is basically a VAR fan, said Fjörtoft: “But you have to see that. It was a clear penalty. That would have been a clear penalty anywhere in the world.”
The former striker added that he could understand very well that coach Edin Terzic, sporting director Sebastian Kehl, the players and fans were pissed off.
BVB, News: Hamann defends referee Stegemann
Didi Hamann, on the other hand, defended the referee. “I wouldn’t have whistled for him either,” said the 49-year-old sky: “I perceived the situation as Herr Stegemann explained. The player from Bochum went there to block a possible shot by Karim Adeyemi. Adeyemi made no attempt to play the ball.”
Immediately before, Stegemann had explained his view of the scene: “As I see it, Karim Adeyemi put his foot out and tried to initiate contact and look for the penalty a bit. He then fell over the Bochum defender. That was mine Perception on the pitch.”
However, the referee has long since recognized his mistake: “When I see the TV pictures now, I have to realize that I made the wrong decision. The video assistant checked the incident and came to the conclusion that it was It’s not a clear wrong decision. The check was over and I let the game continue.”
