FC Bayern has released the following statement regarding the German Football Association (DFB) inquiry into incidents after last Saturday's match between FC Bayern and Hertha BSC:
We regard Carlo Ancelotti's gesture in response to being spat at as an understandable emotional reaction.
The DFB panel has accepted this position and will cease its inquiry. However, as an apology for his gesture Carlo Ancelotti will make a donation of 5,000 Euros to the DFB Foundation.
