Ugly scene at 1: 3 between Schalke and Werder Bremen: Ozan Kabak spat on Luwenig Augustinsson. After the game, he finds drastic words for the scene. Coach Wagner defends his protégé.
The Bremer professor Ludwig Augustinsson reacted with horror at the spitting attack of Schalke’s defender Ozan Kabak. “It’s not fun, it has nothing to do with football. It’s not fair play,” Augustinsson said on Saturday evening after Werder Bremen’s 3-1 win at FC Schalke 04 on Sky TV. He did not even notice the situation in the 27th minute, the 26-year-old Swede said as he watched the television images. In the 84th minute, Kabak got the yellow-red card for repeated foul play.
“That was deliberate, a deliberate action,” said Sky expert Lothar Matthäus. “Being spat on as a player is the worst. I hope he will be punished.” However, Schalke coach David Wagner said, “I know Ozan and I am convinced it was not on purpose.” His Bremer colleague Florian Kohfeldt became clearer: “That is of course an absolute absurdity that does not belong on the football field.”
