Bayern Munich fined midfielder Corentin Tolisso an unspecified amount and dropped him from Saturday’s Bundesliga game against Hoffenheim after the French world champion broke the league’s health measures by getting a tattoo.
The 26-year-old had briefly posted on social media a video of him getting a tattoo, that angered club officials.
“We are happy that despite the current situation Bundesliga matches can be played. A condition for that is that players, coaches and staff stick to the health rules set out,” Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said in a statement.
“Corentin Tolisso has now broken these rules despite the fact that the club leadership has clearly communicated those rules with the team. This is frustrating and will not be tolerated.”
