Marco Reus couldn’t hide his anger from the officials after Borussia Dortmund suffered a late 4-2 defeat against Bayern Munich on Saturday.
Dortmund wanted to secure a well-deserved point in the Allianz Arena before Leon Goretzka gave Bayern the lead two minutes before the end.
However, Reus felt that the referee should have blown in preparation for a foul and wondered if the referee would have come to the same conclusion if it had been the other way around.
What happened in The Classic?
Dortmund got off to a perfect start with Erling Haaland, who scored twice within the first nine minutes.
Robert Lewandowski tapped Leroy Sane’s cross to bring Bayern back into play before leveling just before the break.
Goretzka brought Bayern into the lead for the first time in this game before Lewandowski completed his hat-trick a few moments later to send the Bavarian giants back to the top of the table.
What did Reus say?
Dortmund had Leroy Sane fouled Emre Can before Bayern’s third goal.
“For me it is a clear foul,” he told Sky Germany.
“I’m honest: if it were against Bayern, the referee would have whistled 100 percent. It’s just like that. Nothing to add. “
Thomas Müller downplayed the incident when he found out about Reus’ comments. “I don’t think we want tackles like this to be called off halfway because of fouls,” he said. “Otherwise it would be stop-start.
“I wouldn’t have seen it as a foul against us either, believe me or not. There is nothing worse than having everything blown the same way over and over again. “
