With the result that fine proceedings are opened against VfB Stuttgart. © imago images The data affair at VfB Stuttgart has its first consequences. "The data protection violations are considerable and prompt us to open a fine procedure," explained Stefan Brink, the state commissioner for data protection and freedom of information for Baden-Württemberg.

And the DFB is of the same opinion. The fact that Alexander Sörloth had given his opponent Valentino Lazaro a slight push before his goal was "fully" perceived by Gräfe and "not punishable", according to the sports management of the elite referees on Sunday on the DFB website.

And "since the pictures do not provide any other aspects, the evaluation remains at the discretion of the referee, which is not clearly and obviously wrong and also corresponded to the line of the referee in the tackle evaluation throughout the game. We classify the decision as reasonable and not wrong . Accordingly, no intervention by the VA is required. "

VfB should have received an early penalty

Wrong, however, referee Guido Winkmann was in the 18th minute of the afternoon game between VfB Stuttgart and Schalke 04. S04 defender Malick Thiaw had brought down Silas Wamangituka in the penalty area, but the penalty whistle did not materialize.

"The referee perceives a slight contact in the duel between the Stuttgart Wamangituka and the Schalke Thiaw in the foot area", the DFB referee management assesses the scene. "This is not enough for him for a penalty kick. In the pictures you can see a clear and verifiable, penalty-worthy kneeling of the Schalke defender, which has absolute evidence for a clear and obvious foul. For this reason, the VA would have an on-field -Review recommended and the referee's original decision must be changed. "

Because they defeated Schalke with 5: 1, the Stuttgart could live with this wrong decision.
