Zwayer reports threats and defends himself against allegations of manipulation

Referee Felix Zwayer spoke for the first time during his break and reported threats against him.

“There have been a lot of messages on my work email account that are incredible and that are very difficult to deal with and ignore,” he said more violently because of his management of the top Bundesliga game between Dortmund and Bayern at the beginning of December Zwayer advised discussions sky.

“I was written to by the Berlin police that there was a death threat against me on the Internet. And these are things that I couldn’t hide from my wife, especially because they were incredibly close to me,” said the 40-year-old: ” You try to load up that backpack and pick it up and say goodbye to your wife in the door like you have for 15 years and then you see her bursting into tears, not because she misses me, because you’re gone, but because she does worried about me.”

In addition, Zwayer denied the allegations that had been smoldering for years that he once accepted money from scandal referee Robert Hoyzer or another person to manipulate a game. “I was never offered any money, I was never overtly told of any intended or actual match-fixing,” he said. “I have never received any money from Robert for any involvement in any match-fixing.”

Zwayer took a break after the game in Dortmund in early December. “Felix Zwayer wants to mentally recover and reflect on what happened after the game in Dortmund,” said referee boss Lutz Michael Fröhlich.

The debate about Zwayer was triggered by young Dortmund star Jude Bellingham. The Englishman had verbally attacked the referee after the game against Bayern: “You give a referee who has already postponed games the biggest game in Germany. What do you expect?”
