Bundesliga referees under suspicion

Several Bundesliga referees are under suspicion: they are said to not have taxed their revenues gained in test matches. For this reason, there was a raid of the police in DFB's centre.
The DFB (Deutscher Fußball Bund) has confirmed a respective report of the "Express" and explained that officials arrived in Frankfurt/Main to get access of several documents about refereeing.
Moreover, according to SID (Sport-Informations-Dienst), even one popular Bundesliga referee from Munich underwent a house search which was confirmed by the concerned referee who did not want to be called by his name. [Merely Dr. Felix Brych, Peter Sippel and Günter Perl come into question].
DFB general secretary Niersbach said that "there [were] no charges against the DFB" and that "the correct payment of tax is resided with every referee himself".
The DFB referee heads Herbert Fandel and Lutz Wagner were surprised: "It is impossible for us so far to say something specific on this issue".

    Ein schwerer Schlag, denke ich..
    Ich befürchte und mittlerweile bin ich mir sicher, dass Brych betroffen ist. Mal abwarten.
