Jude Bellingham fumes over Kai Havertz penalty retake


Borussia Dortmund star, Jude Bellingham has expressed his disappointment with Kai Havertz being allowed to retake a crucial penalty during their Champions League match against Chelsea which ended 2-0 in favour of the English club.


The penalty itself drew controversy after Marius Wolf was penalized for handball despite having it kicked towards him at point-blank range. There was also another debate after Havertz was allowed to retake the penalty after it was adjudged that Salih Ozcan had encroached before the German kicked the ball.

Speaking to BT Sport after the game, Bellingham said;

“From where I was, it was pretty close and I’m not sure what more he can do with the hands. I don’t want to get in trouble, I’ve paid enough to them lot. That was disappointing and the fact they’ve had a retake is a joke. For every penalty, especially with a slow run-up, there’s going to be people encroaching. But that’s the game I suppose, he’s made the decision.”
