For the first time in the history of the “Bundesliga” stopping matches in order to break the fast of Muslim players (photos + video)  In a precedent, the first of its kind in the history of the German League (Bundesliga), a match is suspended to enable Muslim players to break their fast in the month of Ramadan.  And it was repeated in the last matches of the German League that matches were suspended by the referees with the time of breakfast entering to give the fasting players the opportunity to break their fast, even if quickly.  This happened for the first time in Germany last week when the referee for the match Mainz and Augsburg, Matthias Ulenbeck, stopped the match a little in order for Mainz captain Moses Nyakate to break the call to prayer, drank a little water and continued the match normally.  After the match, the referee, Matthias Ulenbeck, said, "The player asked me before the match if he could stop for a drink at sunset because he is a Muslim and fasts Ramadan. Of course, I agreed to that.. When the game stopped, I told him and waited until he finished breakfast."  The process was repeated on Sunday in the match between Leipzig and Hoffenheim, when the referee stopped the match so that Leipzig player Mohamed Simacan could drink water and break the fast before continuing the match.   This phenomenon was highly appreciated by the followers, who praised this good behavior, and expressed their hope that the phenomenon would spread more in all stadiums of the world.  Source: media
