Karim Adeyemi, who switched from Red Bull Salzburg to Borussia Dortmund in the summer, is the focus of attention in the German Bundesliga. In the top game, the BVB star knocked over Frankfurt’s Jesper Lindström in the penalty area, but the penalty whistle didn’t come. Frankfurt is pissed off, Adeyemi can only smile about it.
The big excitement just before the break: Lindström was in the Dortmund penalty area and only had to push in after a shot from his colleague Randal Kolo Muani. Then the push from Adeyemi, the Frankfurt fell. Surprisingly, referee Sascha Stegmann decided on hand ball from Lindström and the video referee didn’t intervene either have to give,” the referee admitted after the game on Sky.Glasner: “The referee was let down.” “The referees are the poorest. He’s waiting for the VAR’s signal and it doesn’t come. Those pictures are brutal. It’s not the first time. The referee was let down here,” said Eintracht coach Oliver Glasner. “Mistakes can happen. But you can see that this is a clear penalty.”Adeyemi: “It wasn’t a foul at all”And what did Adeyemi say? “First I was behind and yes, then he was in front of me. For me it wasn’t a foul at all. So I felt like I was body to body with him. That’s why I thought the referee was right,” said the Dortmunder in the Sport1 interview. Can he understand the frustration of the Frankfurters? Adeyemi laughed, “That’s their business. We’ve got three points, I don’t really care.” Dortmund ended Frankfurt’s run of four competitive wins in a row. The flattering 2-1 win against Frankfurt, who had an enormous presence, was achieved with efficiency, luck and an outstanding goalkeeper, Gregor Kobel.
