In an apology, Kalou said that he is worried about the people of Africa. The apology comes after his club Hertha Berlin announced that the midfielder has been suspended for the misconduct with Bundesliga attempting to return to action this month.
“With this video taken inside the team’s dressing room, Kalou broke clear internal rules and displayed a behaviour which is neither appropriate for this current situation, nor reflective of the code of conduct of Hertha BSC. The club has therefore made the decision to suspend the player in question from training and matches with immediate effect.”
Hertha general manager Michael Preetz added that Kalou has not only done a great deal of damage to Hertha BSC, but also created the impression that individual players are not taking the issue of coronavirus seriously, in a time of great discussion on the resumption of football and the role of the professional game.
“We’re clearly following the requirements of the health authorities responsible for us, as well as the recommendations of the RKI,” added Preetz.
