Bundesliga: For penalty checks: Rose demands a time limit for video evidence

RB Leipzig coach Marco Rose has spoken out in favor of a time limit for interventions by the video referee. This should particularly apply to penalty situations that are not clear at first glance.

"If you have to draw a line when you're offside, it can take time here and there. But taking a good look at decisions, looking properly, that doesn't work," said Rose after RB Leipzig's 5-1 win over VfB Stuttgart. In this game, the video referee intervened a total of four times.

Penalty situations were evaluated twice. In a scene just before half-time, Stuttgart's Serhou Guirassy brought down RB captain Willi Orban in his own penalty area, but had previously been pushed by Yussuf Poulsen. "Then it's five minutes to see if Poulsen committed a foul. Either I don't see a clear wrong decision after ten seconds, then it's okay," said Rose. "But to watch five minutes and then not send the referee out to watch it again for yourself. That's what drives me crazy."

Rose sees yellow

Referee Frank Willenborg (Osnabrück) decided against getting his own impression on the screen and refused a penalty. Rose then ran towards the referee gesticulating wildly and saw the yellow card for it. After the game, the 46-year-old apologized to Willenborg and took his own behavior with humor. "Sometimes it bursts out of me. Now I have my second yellow card on the second matchday, so I have to plan well for the rest of the season," said Rose. He was "completely over it", that's not right.

In the end, Willenborg and his colleagues in Cologne's Videokeller decided against a penalty in two penalties. In two offside scenes, they recognized the first goal from Leipzig's Lois Openda to make it 2-1, and the second in the 66th minute to make it 3-1. Guirassy (35th) put Stuttgart in the lead. Benjamin Henrichs (51'), Dani Olmo (63'), Openda, Kevin Kampl (74') and Xavi Simons (76') turned the game around with their goals within 25 minutes.
