Referee Gets Fed Up, Walks Off In Middle Of Bayer Leverkusen-Borussia Dortmund Match

Referee Felix Zwayer took his officiating crew off the pitch after Bayer Leverkusen manager Roger Schmidt earned an ejection but refused to leave during today’s match against Dortmund.

The incident came just after Leverkusen conceded a goal to the visiting team; after Zwayer boycotted the match due to Schmidt’s insubordination, both teams were sent to their locker rooms. The match finally resumed after nearly 15 minutes of delay, when Schmidt accepted his ban.
