Midfielder Corentin Tolisso this week got a tattoo, which contravenes the guidelines set by FC Bayern as part of the DFL’s hygiene concept. It means Tolisso is not part of this weekend’s squad and will receive a fine.

Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge: “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. 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.”
