Judge Sascha Stegemannwho worked on the match of the 30th round of the German championship “Bochum” – “Borussia D” (1: 1) admitted that he made a gross mistake at the end of the meeting, not assigning a penalty to the hosts’ goal.
– I rewatched the episode. The moment with Adeyemi is a penalty in favor of Borussia. I didn’t see the whole episode while on the field. The defender was moving at high speed, and I was sure that Adeyemi was the first to put his foot. Of course, the video assistant reviewed the episode, he gave it a rating. He considered that I did not make a clear mistake, so I did not receive recommendations to study the repetition myself.
– Could you come to the monitor yourself?
– Yes, if I doubted the decision. But on the field, I had no doubts. Looking back, I can say: I would be happy if I watched the replay. Of course, I want to always make the right decisions, correctly evaluate the episodes. I am very irritated, I feel lousy. I slept very little at night, it’s unpleasant for me,” Stegemann said.
Note that Bayern on Sunday can take advantage of Borussia D’s misfire and lead the standings if they beat Hertha.
