Referee Benjamin Kurtos described abandoning the match in Bochum as inevitable. “In the event of a physical attack on the match official, in this case the assistant referee, there is simply no alternative to stopping the match,” Curtos said on the Dazen website. After the cup was thrown, the Bundesliga match between Bochum and Borussia Monchengladbach was interrupted on Friday evening when the score was 2-0 for the visitors. Curtos said the cup visibly hit Gittleman in the head. “He was dizzy and taken to hospital and is being examined there,” the main referee said. Florian Heft, Curtos’ second assistant, accompanied Gittleman to the hospital.
