Mats Hummels has been charged with everything against referee Michael Oliver after he was sent off in the match in the fourth round of the UEFA Champions League between Borussia Dortmund and Ajax. The world champion finds it surprising that even with the support of the VAR, the English referee kicked him out of Anthony.
The BVB defender believes that the judge, with his painful decision, decided the match for his team. Pay attention to his words in Dazen: “I have no idea how to show a red card for that, being a referee at the supposed level of the Champions League. I stayed on the field. I told myself I had to check it and then change to yellow. When he got the red card, he didn’t believe it. That was Ridiculously wrong decision. I decided the match today. I guess you know“.
He was an experienced German player too annoying Anthony’s behavior a lot. I think he acted, and that he exaggerated the behavior of what is not mathematical at all: “My opponent’s performance (Anthony) shouldn’t be ignored, this is a hugely unsportsmanlike performance. He came to me and told me it wasn’t a red card. That’s a hoax, that’s ridiculous.” He is a great footballer, and now he has to learn how to become a great athlete.”
As Hummels expressed on Instagram, he disagreed: “No more words for that red card…Fix the VAR!”
Mats went to shower before the first half hour of the duel ended. And despite the fact that the yellow team managed to advance with a penalty kick from Marco Reus, Eric Ten Hag’s team ended up returning and winning (1-3). Interestingly, Anthony, who was involved in all three of Ajax’s goals, was named Player of the Night.
With their defeat to giants Amsterdam, Borussia Dortmund will have to excel in the last two rounds. His visit to the Estadio Sporting de Portugal (the fifth round) is the key.
Unbeatable data. Today was Mats Hummels’ first expulsion from the Champions League.
Did you know…? Anthony scored 4 goals and 4 assists in 12 matches he played this season with Ajax. So far in the Champions League, he scored 1 goal and made 4 assists in 4 matches.
