The German Football Federation is set to investigate Nigeria’s Leon Balogun for violent conduct, BBC reports.
Balogun who plays for FSV Mainz is alleged to have deliberately kneed Eintracht Frankfurt’s Carlos Zambrano in the stomach in the 89th minute of Sunday’s league match between the two clubs.
Match referee, Felix Zwayer, did not see the infringement but it was caught be the television cameras.
He has been invited to give a statement relating to the incident. The federation’s disciplinary committee will make a judgment after considering the evidence and Balogun’s statement.
