Football manager banned from Bundesliga restart for buying toothpaste

FC Augsburg head coach Heiko Herrlich will not be present for his side’s Bundesliga return against Wolfsburg on Saturday after violating coronavirus protocols.

Herrlich, who was preparing for his first game in charge, admitted to leaving the club’s hotel on Thursday, reportedly to buy toothpaste and face cream.

Herrlich will now be tested again in the next few days and will not be allowed to return to training until he receives two negative results.

The 48-year-old said on the club’s official website: “I made a mistake by leaving the hotel. Even if I have followed all hygiene measures both when leaving the hotel and otherwise, I cannot undo this.

‘In this situation, I was not able to act as a role model for my team and the public. I will therefore be consistent and stand by my mistake.
