No action against Timo Werner

The DFB will not take action against Timo Werner following Saturday’s controversial penalty decision.

Werner appeared to dive in the penalty area after just 19 seconds, which resulted in Werner giving RB Leipzig the lead.

“We have thoroughly examined the situation. Ultimately, the referee took a decision based on facts,” committee chairman Anton Nachreiner said.

“By communicating with a video assistant, Bastian Dankert could have reviewed the situation and definitely would have arrived at the right decision,” the DFB’s head referee, Lutz Michael Fröhlich, said.
