Here, however, DFB suspended Lukas Podolski eliminated from the game against Hertha by the referee Guido Winkmann only one stage, as that comes to defend a decision which way to head game but also indirectly recognize that removal was absolutely free. Unfortunately federation has… strength of character as to lead to the end and it absolves the player innocent of any sanction. Koln has appealed the decision, the video clearly showing that Podolski was not guilty of anything, will debate next few days before the sports tribunal.

In the match against Hannover, in the minute 49′ slapped his opponent, Pogatetz, without special track, all took a split second, of the international Austrian was not thrown to the ground and did not lament, being unnoticed by the referee phase Dingert Christian. The cameras have recorded at that time, the discipline and control committee studying the case and consider putting a penalty that could mean even more steps to suspend.
