Bellingham questioned the appointment of Zwayer after Dortmund’s defeat, referring to the referee’s six-month ban for a match-fixing scandal in 2005.

Zwayer rejected Dortmund’s appeals for a penalty in the Bundesliga fixture, before giving Bayern a spot-kick for a Mats Hummels handball.

Robert Lewandowski converted the penalty to secure victory for Bayern.

Speaking to Viaplay, Bellingham said: “You give a referee, that has match fixed before, the biggest game in Germany. What do you expect?

“For me, it wasn’t (a penalty). He (Hummels) is not even looking at the ball and he’s fighting to get it and it hits him.

“You can look at a lot of the decisions in the game.”
