After the defeat against FC Bayern, BVB’s anger was very much focused on referee Zwayer. This then withdrew for the first time. Dortmund’s coach Rose now struck conciliatory tones.

Borussia Dortmund’s coach Marco Rose is hoping for the return of the Bundesliga referee Felix Zwayer, who is currently on hold. “I just wish Mr. Zwayer a good and quiet time,” said Rose on Thursday and added: “Hopefully with the result that he’ll enjoy whistling football games again.” Zwayer is currently not leading any Bundesliga games after the fuss about himself at the top match between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich.

The 40-year-old referee was heavily criticized by Dortmund after their 3-2 defeat in early December. BVB midfielder Jude Bellingham had verbally attacked the Berliner. The Englishman had indirectly accused Zwayer of bribery, alluding to the referee scandal surrounding Robert Hoyzer 17 years ago.

About the game against the leaders of the table, Rose said: “We just felt we were not treated properly on this match day. We had the impression that the referee’s performance was wrong. We announced that, and then things basically go on.”

Rose is open to a conversation with Zwayer. “I’m always up for dialogue,” he said. “I am always ready for anything in principle, because of course it makes sense to have a basic conversation, because then you hear a few things from other sides and get different perspectives and a few things may also dissolve.”

About Zwayer’s break, the 45-year-old said: “I believe that this is a personal decision by Felix Zwayer. When you work in the area where we work, it is also clear that you have to keep hearing things about yourself, always have to read things about you again. You have to be able to deal with that, that’s clear. “
