Salomon Kalou Suspended By Hertha Berlin For Video Ignoring Coronavirus Hygiene Rules

Salomon Kalou Suspended By Hertha Berlin For Video Ignoring Coronavirus Hygiene Rules

Salomon Kalou has been suspended by Hertha Berlin after streaming a video showing himself and teammates ignoring coronavirus health rules.

Kalou could have plunged the German season resuming into doubt after a Facebook Live video showed him breaking a variety of rules, as well as walking on on another player's coronavirus test.

The video has since been deleted and it comes on a day German officials confirmed there were 10 new cases of coronavirus across the 32 teams in the Budesliga and the 2. Bundeliga.

Kalou can be seen shaking hands and fist bumping with others, despite strict rulings to not do so.

The player's test he walks in on is defender Jordan Torunarigha and the club doctor repeatedly asks the 34-year-old to stop filming stating:

"Sala, please. Sala, delete that, please."

Kalou then proceeds to leaves the room explaining it was only a joke.

Matheus Cunha Scores Absolutely Outrageous Goal For Hertha Berlin On Bundesliga Return

Clubs around the world have cut player wages in an attempt to save money during the pandemic, while also not receiving any matchday income.

Ivory Coast international Kalou can be seen waving a piece of paper, thought to be his wage slip, to the camera in the video.

Other players can also be heard in the video but their comments are inaudible.

"The images of Salomon Kalou in the Hertha Berlin dressing room are absolutely unacceptable,' the Deutsche Fußball Liga (DFL) began in a statement on Monday.

"There can be no tolerance of this - especially given the players and clubs who are keeping to the measures because they recognise the seriousness of the situation."

German sides were hoping to see the league resume sometime in May and are waiting on a decision from Chancellor Angela Merkel and other politicians later this week.
