Wome under investigation for alleged elbow

August 19, 2008

Cologne defender Pierre Wome is facing a suspension after the German Football Association launched an investigation into an alleged incident involving the player at the weekend.

The 29-year-old Cameroonian is accused of intentionally elbowing Wolfsburg midfielder Ashkan Dejagah during Saturday's Bundesliga encounter, which the Wolves won 2-1.

The 84th-minute incident was missed by the match referee, allowing the DFB to have the final say on the matter after reviewing television replays of the clash, which left Dejagah with concussion and bruising.

Both players have also been asked to file a written statement to the DFB.
