After the mug-scandal in Bochum, referee assistant Christian Ggantmann has demanded hard punishments.

“A nationwide zero tolerance policy with a clearly defined and for all known and tough sentence should be worked out,” said Ggantmann in an interview on the homepage of the German Football Federation (DFB), only so “violence” against The impartial – especially “on the amateur courts” – to avoid.

Gittelmann was hit in the game of VfL Bochum against Borussia Mönchengladbach after almost 70 minutes of a filled beer cup at the back of the head. Referee Benjamin Cortus initially interrupted the game and then broke her finally.

“Skull impeller and whiplash diagnosed”

“The hit has taken me, especially since it hit me with full force and unexpectedly on the head,” said Gittenmann, who had examined himself after the incident in the hospital. “A skull impeller and a whiplash was diagnosed.”

The act make him “stunned”. He will take a few days, “to come to rest and process the matter”. Then he wanted “return to the square as soon as possible”. Next weekend he was scheduled for a international game use.
