Germany defender, Antonio Rudiger has come out to say that he didn’t bite Pogba during last night’s match vs France. He recently revealed that the pictures of the incident just appear very unfortunate.
According to him, even if he admits that his mouth shouldn’t be that close to Pogba’s back, he never meant any harm.
Rudiger added that he and Paul have discussed the incident as friends, and Pogba agreed that it wasn’t a bite.
His words, “I should not come close with my mouth to his back, no doubt about it. It looks unfortunate,”
“Paul and I have talked about it as friends after the final whistle.”
“And he stated in our little talk and talking to the press that it was no bite, as some viewers first thought it was. Even during the match, the ref told me that he would have punished me if he thought that it was violent conduct.”
Pogba added, “We’re friends,”
“This was nothing big. I’m not crying for yellow or red cards for such actions. He nibbled, I think, a little bit on me.”
“I felt it, I told the referee, he takes the decisions and he took the decision. He hasn’t received any card and I think it’s better like this. I don’t want him to be suspended because of this.”
