Sinsheim (AP) – Midfielder Florian Grillitsch criticized referee Robert Hartmann with sharp words after TSG 1899 Hoffenheim’s defeat against Union Berlin.
“I think the only one who didn’t have a Bundesliga level was the referee. That was bottomless for me,” said the Austrian international in the DAZN interview after the 1: 3 (0: 0) Monday evening in Sinsheim. Grillitsch mainly meant the red card for his teammate Robert Skov and the penalty that Max Kruse used to make it 1-0 for the guests (60th minute). Grillitsch also criticized 41-year-old Hartmann from Wangen / Allgäu’s communication on the field.
