Controversy Surrounding Referee Danny Makkelie Ahead of DFB Team’s Euro 2024 Match Against Hungary

Controversy Surrounding Referee Danny Makkelie Ahead of DFB Team’s Euro 2024 Match Against Hungary

Phew, hopefully there won’t be any discussion about the referee after this game.

As UEFA announced on Monday morning, Dutchman Danny Makkelie (41) will referee the national team’s second group match on Wednesday evening against Hungary (6 p.m., ARD, MagentaTV and here in the BILD live ticker) at the 2024 European Championship. The national team, Julian Nagelsmann and Emre Can do not have the best memories of Makkelie.

One after the other: DFB star Emre Can (30) accused him of arrogance in March 2023. After winning 1-0 in the first leg, Dortmund lost 2-0 to Chelsea FC – the knockout round of the Champions League. The focus: Makkelie, who caused incomprehension at BVB and the TV experts with two penalty decisions.

EM 2024: Danny Makkelie to referee DFB team against Hungary

After the game, Can raged: “The referee. It was his fault today. How can you give a second penalty in that situation? How can that be done? That’s just not possible! I don’t give a damn who ran in there before. He was arrogant the whole game – that’s where it started. We lost undeservedly here, also because of the referee.”

Matthias Sammer (56), Amazon TV expert, also hit out at Makkelie at the time: “The penalty plus replay – that is a real scandal. There are personalities for such constellations. Makkelie is a very, very arrogant person. As a referee, you also have a certain charisma.”

In addition, Germany has not yet won a single game at major tournaments under Makkelie. In the round of 16 of the 2021 European Championship, we were eliminated by England (0-2). At the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, we only managed a 1-1 draw against Spain.

Julian Nagelsmann once complained about referee Danny Makkelie

Julian Nagelsmann also criticized the Dutch police officer when he was Leipzig coach. In the 2020/2021 Champions League group stage, he gave Paris a penalty that led to Neymar’s winning goal. Nagelsmann complained: “The penalty was a joke. Something like that at Champions League level is really sad.”

The Dutchman has been a FIFA referee since 2011. He has refereed at the 2021 European Championship and the 2022 World Cup, as well as 47 Champions League and 17 Europa League games. Makkelie also refereed the 2020 Europa League final in Cologne. Now he will referee our second group game at the home European Championship. Hopefully without attracting any negative attention.
