It was less obvious than Luis Suarez’s bite against Chiellini at the 2014 World Cup, but a similar situation resurfaced in the memory of Antonio Rudiger fans, with the German defender who to annoy Paul og a little bit gave him a bite on the back, a moment which was clearly seen by the fans on television but not by the referee of the match:
“He gave me a bite, I believe, but we have known each other for a long time. For me it is something closed, it was a nice match where the fans also had fun, I do not want Rudiger to be punished for such an action. At the end of the match, we hugged “, said Pogba regarding this episode that made quite a fuss. Despite Pogba’s statement, UEFA could open an investigation into the gesture by referring to television footage. If a decision is made, Rudiger may not be present for Saturday’s challenge against Portugal.
