Rüdiger makes headlines for 'trying' to bite Pogba

WATCH: Rüdiger makes headlines for 'trying' to bite Paul Pogba's back

June 15, 2021 By Oscar Rojas
The defender had quite a strange method of trying to stop the French midfielder, and while the TV cameras caught the incident, VAR officers turned a blind eye on this.

One of the most bizarre incidents that took place in the France-Germany match of the UEFA Euro had Antonio Rüdiger and Paul Pogba as protagonists. The main problem is that it had nothing to do with a goal, an assist, or even a foul.

Just when the first half was coming to an end, Rüdiger was spotted trying to mark Paul Pogba. The main problem with his man-to-man marking came when everyone realized that Rüdiger applied a strange "method" of marking by trying to take a bit off Pogba's back, followed by a suggestive rub of the Frenchman's chest.

To make matters even more bizarre, VAR officers decided to ignore the incident, which could have been categorized as an aggression against Pogba, and which should have been checked by those watching the Video Assistant Referee monitors.

As soon as the incident took place, fans on social media did not waste any time to find a resemblance between this defensive move by Rüdiger and the antics that made Luis Suárez famous before he started scoring a ton of goals. Have a look at this rather bizarre incident (Image might be geo-restricted).
