BAYERN’S ANCELOTTI ACCUSES HERTHA FANS OF SPITTING AT HIM

Carlo Ancelotti has admitted showing his middle finger to Hertha Berlin fans he accused of spitting at him after Bayern Munich’s 1-1 draw in the German capital on Saturday.
With Bayern trailing to Vedad Ibisevic’s 21st minute goal and the allocated five minutes of added time already played, substitute Robert Lewandowski salvaged a point for the league leaders with the last kick of the game.
Lewandowski’s 16th league goal season — timed at 95:59 — was the latest goal in Bundesliga history since detailed records began in 2004-05.
But in ugly scenes following Lewandowski’s dramatic last-gasp equaliser, Hertha’s goalkeeper Rune Jarstein kicked the ball into Xabi Alonso’s back from close range, leading to an on-pitch melee between the two teams.

Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, in attack for the late free kick from which Bayern grabbed their goal, said: “That has nothing to do with fair play, it doesn’t matter how frustrated you are. There’s a massive crowd here and it’s not setting a good example.”
And Hertha fans are alleged to have spat at Bayern boss Ancelotti as he was going down the tunnel towards the dressing rooms. The 57-year-old Italian reacted by extending his middle finger to the offending parties.
Speaking to ARD Sportschau after the game: “Yes, I made this gesture as I was spat at earlier.”
Seeking a fifth consecutive Bundesliga title, the late share of the spoils in Berlin moves Bayern eight points clear of Leipzig, who face Borussia Monchengladbach on Sunday.
