A coach in the Bundesliga may be punished for simulation
Haiko Herlih may be punished by the Disciplinary Commission of the German Football Union (DFB) for simulation, media reported in the country. He fell to the ground after contacting Borussia Mönchengladbach, but the cameras show that the senior coach of Bayer Leverkusen played a significant part in the situation.
After the match won by the aspirin with 1: 0, Herlih apologized, but that would hardly influence the decision of the federation, which demanded his official opinion on the case. His behavior can bring a punishment under the rules of unsportsmanlike conduct. “We will decide what to do with Herllix after the hearing,” FB said.
Leverkusen’s senior coach fell to the ground when he was slightly touched by the ball that ran out of the field, Zakaria. The 46-year-old coach, a former striker and German national, apologized at the press conference after the game and explained that he was not aiming to score a red card for Borussia Mönchengladbach’s player. “Surely he looked stupid,” Herlih admitted.
