Labyrinthine Covid Reminder System Is The Real Reason For The Delays


Jude Bellingham has been fined € 40,000 (£ 33,970) by the German Football Association (DFB) for comments on referee Felix Zwayer after Borussia Dortmund’s Bundesliga defeat to Bayern Munich.

The England international was charged with “unsportsmanlike behavior” and accepted his punishment. Bellingham, 18, questioned the appointment of Zwayer, who was suspended for six months in 2005 after being embroiled in a match-fixing scandal, after controversial decisions in his side’s 3-2 loss.

Zwayer rejected Dortmund’s appeals for a penalty and later kicked Bayern after Mats Hummels was deemed to have dealt.

A DFB statement read: “The German Football Association (DFB) sports court fined Jude Bellingham € 40,000 in single-judge proceedings after the DFB review board had brought charges of unsportsmanlike behavior.

“The player of Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund has already given his consent to the judgment, the judgment is now final. After the Bundesliga game against Bayern Munich on Saturday, Bellingham said in a TV interview about referee Felix Zwayer: “You give a referee who has already rigged Germany’s most important game. What are you waiting for? ‘. As a result, he questioned the arbitrator’s impartiality and ultimately denied it.

Robert Lewandowski converted Bayern’s 77th-minute penalty to a 3-2 victory at Signal Iduna Park, which lifted them four points behind Dortmund at the top.
