Borussia Dortmund chief Hans-Joachim Watzke says Jude Bellingham has management's full support after his blast for ref Felix Zwayer.

In the aftermath of their controversial 3-2 defeat to Bayern Munich, Bellingham took aim at Zwayer, referencing his past match-fixing case.

Watzke, in reaction, declared: "I jump to Jude's side.

"This is due to the emotion at this moment. Jude Bellingham reminded us of something that actually happened.

"You have to be able to overlook the fact that an 18-year-old gets something like that out of such a situation. Because we also have to overlook a lot. One could say a lot more about Felix Zwayer's performance, but I don't want to add fuel to the fire now."
