Augsburg (AP) – FC Augsburg criticized the penalty decision in the home defeat against VfB Stuttgart (1: 4).
“The sticking point was clearly the penalty,” said manager Stefan Reuter, criticizing the whistle on Sunday, which had led to the 1-0 for VfB in the tenth minute through Nicolas Gonzalez. “From my point of view it was definitely not a penalty.”
Reece Oxford stood on Mateo Klimowicz’s foot in the penalty area, while referee Daniel Schlager resolutely decided on a penalty. “From my point of view, it wasn’t a penalty,” said Augsburg coach Heiko Herrlich, criticizing the whistle, which he thought was a decisive factor in the game. FCA professional Daniel Caligiuri also decided after viewing the TV pictures and spoke of a “wrong decision”.
