The club would like to say that this was the single player failure. The fact that other team members did not draw their attention to this misconduct and respond with a handshake to the greeting shows that regular references to distance and hygiene rules should be even more intense. “In addition, and despite the punishment, Salomon Kalou has apologized through his club’s website: “Sorry if I gave the impression that I am not taking the coronavirus seriously. I apologize for this. It is the opposite of my case, because I am especially concerned about people in Africa, because medical care is not as good as in Germany. I really didn’t think and was happy that our tests were negative And I also want to apologize to those who showed themselves in the video that they didn’t know. “Michael Preetz, general manager of the club, also wanted to respond: “Salomon Kalou not only caused much harm to Hertha BSC with his video, but especially in the current social discussion on the resumption of play and the role of professional football, it seems that individual players do not take the issue of coronavirus seriously. However, I would like to expressly emphasize that we have drawn everyone’s attention to hygiene and distance standards and ensure that they are strictly adhered to. We are clearly guided by the provisions of the health authority responsible for us and the recommendations of the RKI.

The Ivorian shows a sealed envelope, supposedly with the player’s payroll inside, and begins to complain along with his partner Vedad Ibisevic of the salary cuts agreed with the club from the Teutonic capital. The Bosnian striker blames the entity for subtracting more money than agreed.“Why are they lying to us? Maybe it was a deliberate mistake. If they did the same with each player, they could make a lot of money“Says Ibisevic. Another voice inside the dressing room adds: “Yes, 3000 over here, 5000 over there.” Ibisevic continues: “They are crazy, brother. I am going to ask them: ‘are you kidding us?’ Imagine that we are going and we say to them: ‘we have come this far. We do not give it to you. You want to tease us.’ But we have already signed the damn paper “.It is not clear if his colleagues are aware that they are being recorded. The most shocking thing is the behavior of the members of the Berlin staff, who at no time comply with the health plan imposed by the federation. Upon entering the locker room, Kalou shook Ibisevic’s hand, a gesture strictly prohibited by the competition body. They also don’t keep the meter and a half away between the players.
