Pogba and Rudiger .. “bite” a friend does not require punishment? | Sports | Reports and analysis of the most important sporting events from DW Arabic | DW


French midfielder Paul Pogba said that he does not want the German player Antonio Rudiger to be subjected to any penalty, after Rudiger comically “bitten” Pogba during the match between the German and French teams at the European Nations Cup (Euro 2020) yesterday evening, Tuesday (Tuesday). 15 June 2021).

To everyone’s surprise, neither the arena referee nor the video assistant referee took any action regarding this incident during the match. Speaking to reporters about Rudiger, Pogba said: “He is my friend, and I am not the one who shouts for a card (for an opponent). I think he bit me lightly, which is a friendly thing, we know each other very well.”

Chelsea defender Rudiger’s behavior with Manchester United playmaker Pogba came before the end of the first half, and at the end of the match, the two players were seen embracing in a friendly conversation.

It should be noted that Uruguayan star Luis Suarez was banned for four months for biting Italian player Giorgio Chiellini during the 2014 World Cup.
