“100 percent red card in my eyes. He swings. That’s crazy, honestly. I don’t know what the referee was thinking,” Anton said after the game (quoted via table football). “For me, there’s either a red for an assault or nothing at all. If it wasn’t for him, he doesn’t have to give anything. But he gives a yellow, I don’t understand. I’ve never seen a yellow for an assault.” At the press conference, interim coach Michael Wimmer agreed with his pro and said that Gladbach shouldn’t have complained about being sent off.

Anton was involved in a tussle with Bensebaini before a Gladbach corner kick in the 17th minute. With a swinging movement, the Algerian hit him with his arm in the face. Referee Dr. Matthias Jöllenbeck initially showed Bensabaini a yellow card. After a tip from the VAR, the referee watched the scene again on the video screen but stood by his decision.

Gräfe criticizes DFB

According to former Bundesliga referee Manuel Gräfe, the action should have resulted in a dismissal. Gräfe explained Twitter, that Anton should have seen a yellow card for his save against the Gladbacher, but Bensebaini should have seen the red card for hitting the face.

He also criticized the DFB’s decision not to use a more experienced referee than Jöllenbeck for the game. Friday games are important for a quiet start to the weekend, according to Gräfe.
