Bayern Munich fine Corentin Tolisso for breaching Covid-19 regulations

Bayern Munich have issued a fine to 26-year-old midfielder Corentin Tolisso after the Frenchman breached Covid-19 hygiene regulations to get a tattoo.

“We’re grateful that games can currently take place in the Bundesliga despite the ongoing coronavirus situation. A condition of that is that players, coaches and staff must adhere to the DFL’s hygiene concept in an exemplary manner,” said Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

“Corentin Tolisso has now contravened these guidelines, although our sporting and medical leadership continuously and clearly communicate them. We won’t tolerate violations like this. We will therefore hand Corentin Tolisso a heavy fine, which will be donated to charity.”

Tolisso is the second Bundesliga player in a matter of weeks to be fined for breaching Covid-19 hygiene regulations after Borussia Mönchengladbach forward Breel Embolo attended an illegal party following their win against VfB Stuttgart.

Bayern Munich also confirm that Tolisso is not a part of this weekend’s squad as a result.
