His performance in the top match between Dortmund and FC Bayern particularly heated the minds of Borussia. Now referee Zwayer should be taken out of the line of fire and no longer whistle BVB games.
As a result of the heated discussions after the top Bundesliga match between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich (2: 3) at the beginning of December, referee Felix Zwayer will no longer lead BVB games for the time being. Referee boss Lutz Michael Fröhlich told the kicker.
“In my opinion, in such a case or a comparable case, it would not be responsible towards all parties to start the same constellation again immediately,” said Fröhlich: “There should be some time left.”
Zwayer involved in the Hoyzer scandal
The Zwayer debate was exacerbated by the young Dortmund star Jude Bellingham. The Englishman had verbally attacked the referee after the game against Bayern.
It was about the past of the Berliner and his involvement in the Hoyzer scandal. In 2004, according to the files, Zwayer had accepted money as an assistant from the mastermind Robert Hoyzer. He later uncovered the scandal, and despite the ban, manipulation was never proven.
According to Fröhlich, however, the files may not correctly reflect the actual occurrences. “Here was the statement by Robert Hoyzer that Felix Zwayer had taken money against Felix Zwayer’s, who denied it. In this situation, he accepted the judgment,” said Fröhlich: “Whenever the process has been repeated in recent years was rolled up, Felix had told me that he hadn’t accepted any money. “
