Infuriating piece of play-acting takes place just too late for Oscar consideration

We wish Mitchell Weiser a full recovery

It’s been a busy day in the Bundesliga.

Saturday saw Robert Lewandowski net his 100th goal for Bayern Munich.

That same game – Bayern’s 3-0 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt – saw one of the tackles of the season courtesy of Mats Hummels.

Oh, and elsewhere we witnessed one of the most enraging pieces of shithousery via Hertha Berlin’s Mitchell Weiser.

Weiser guaranteed his starring role in memes for years to come with his utterly outrageous dive during his side’s 2-1 win at home to Borussia Dortmund this weekend.

With Dortmund chasing the game, Weiser tried to kill time by belting the ball into the opposition half after a foul had been given against him.

Dortmund’s Ousmane Dembele had won the foul but as he tried to close down Weiser’s attempts to boot the ball away, the Hertha man was seemingly shot by a sniper in the crowd.

As the lack of blood streaming from Weiser’s face will tell you, he wasn’t actually hit by a bullet but merely trying to get an opposition player booked.

And he succeeded!

The referee showed Dembele a yellow card for disgracefully, shamefully, horrifically making no contact whatsoever with Weiser.

Weiser’s play-acting means that Dembele will now miss Dortmund’s next game.

We hope he’s proud of himself.
