Bundesliga: Ujah’s Union Berlin Coach banned from Bayern Clash Over Lockdown Violation

Anthony Ujah’s Union Berlin coach Urs Fischer will miss his team’s Bundesliga game at home against Bayern Munich on Sunday after he broke lockdown rules to visit family, Completesports.com reports.

According to reports, Fischer breached the restrictions to be with family following the loss of his father in law.

The Bundesliga resumed this weekend and strict rules have been in place to prevent the spread of the deadly coronavirus.

As well as comprehensive testing, teams are also required to remain in quarantine at all times.

Fischer will only be able to return after two negative tests for COVID-19.

Augsburg boss Heiko Herrlich missed his side’s 2-1 home loss against Wolfsburg on Saturday after breaking lockdown restrictions to buy toothpaste.

The 48-year-old had earlier said: “I have no toothpaste and then I went to a supermarket.”

And in a statement, Herrlich added: “I made a mistake by leaving the hotel.

“Even though 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.

“Because of this misconduct, I will not be leading the training [on Friday] and will not be in charge of the team against Wolfsburg on Saturday.”

Having been appointed in March, this would have been Herrlich’s first match in charge.
