Super Eagles forward Anthony Ujah has blamed referee Florian Meyer for Werder Bremen’s 1-1 draw against VFB Stuttgart on Sunday but was quick to add that Bremen will keep fighting hard to stay above the relegation zone.
The former Mainz star who was hurled down in the box by an VFB Stuttgart defender in Sunday’s draw revealed it took him five minutes to get himself back after the rash tackle.
“For me, it was a clear penalty. There was contact. The defender even apologized to me for the foul,” he added.
“I needed five minutes afterwards until everything was okay again. It’s unlucky for us, but errors are part of football.”
“It was hard to get into the game in the first half. Stuttgart controlled it, but in the second half we played much better and deserved the point an important point which we shall keep fighting,” Ujah told the Werder Bremen website.
Meanwhile Ujah gave a hint he is expecting a new baby after he scored an important equalizer for his side in their 1-1 draw VFB Stuttgart at the Mercedes-Benz Arena on Sunday.
Ujah who has now scored nine goals for 17 games for Werder Bremen in all competitions put the ball under his shirt and sucked his thumb like a baby as he celebrated his seventh Bundesliga goal of the campaign.
Werder Bremen are currently 15th on the log with 14 points from 15 games.
Next up for Ujah and company is an away trip to against his former team Cologne who are tenth in the Bundesliga table.
