German broadcaster ARD reported the 57-year-old Italian raised his middle finger to home fans after claiming he had been spat on during Saturday’s Bundesliga match, which saw Bayern net a stoppage-time equaliser through Robert Lewandowski .
When asked about the incident, Ancelotti told ARD Sportschau.: “Yes, I made the gesture because I was spat on.”
ARD report that the German Football Association (DFB) will contact the former
Chelsea, Paris St Germain and Real Madrid boss for his views on the matter.
Lewandowski’s goal six minutes into added time at the end of the game cancelled out Vedad Ibisevic’s first-half opener for Hertha and helped Bayern open up an eight-point lead at the top of the Bundesliga.
