Striker Erling Haaland fumed at referee Felix Zwayer over his decision not to award Borussia Dortmund a penalty in their 3-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in a crucial top-of-the-table clash in the Bundesliga on Saturday.
Dortmund had two claims for a penalty in a match that also saw manager Marco Rose sent off with a second booking for dissent, but referee Zwayer refused both times to review the plays, most notably when winger Marco Reus went down in the box after a tussle with opposing defender Lucas Hernandez.
"I think it was a scandal when it comes to the referee," Haaland told ViaPlay. "I asked him [Zwayer] 'why didn't you just go and look?' He said: 'No, there is no need.'
"I need to calm down a little bit now. He was arrogant, and I will not say more."
However, Bayern were given a break when Robert Lewandowski scored the disputed winner from the spot in the 78th minute, after referee Zwayer awarded the penalty following a VAR check. Zwayer penalized Mats Hummels for handball after Serge Gnabry's corner struck the Dortmund defender's elbow as he appeared to stumble.
