Hertha Berlin players won ’ t be punished for hugging and kissing during Bundesliga match

Hertha Berlin players won ’ t be punished for hugging and kissing as they enjoyed a much – needed victory when German football resumed on Saturday , the Bundesliga confirmed after the match .

In order to obtain the political green light to resume this weekend , the Bundesliga agreed strict rules to avoid the spread of coronavirus .

Yet , while players in other games celebrated with elbow taps or solo dance routines , Hertha ’ s players hugged and kissed as they won , 3 – 0 , in Hoffenheim .

Hertha started the game 13th in the table with only seven wins in 25 games and under new management.
Their Belgian defender Dedryck Boyata kissed team -mate Marko Grujic on the cheek after their team ’ s first goal.

“ The fact is that this is part of football , ” said Bruno Labbadia , who was named as Jurgen Klinsmann ’ s replacement during the lockdown . “We’ ve been tested so many times that we can allow it . ”

“ If you can ’ t celebrate anymore , the whole thing breaks down .

I’ m just glad that the team had reason to cheer today . ”

“ Emotions are part of the game . ”

The German Football League had presented the German authorities with a 51- page document, which convinced the federal government and regions that football could be allowed to resume behind closed doors .

In an accompanying document sent to clubs, the DFL said hugging and hand contact in celebration of goals should be avoided and that preference should be given to “ elbow or foot contact ”.

But on Saturday , a DFL spokesman confirmed there would be no punishment , as it had only offered “guidelines ” on how goals should be celebrated.

“ For celebrations , only advice has been given and therefore there can be no sanctions , ” a DFL spokesman said .

As part of its programme to ensure a safe return , the DFL has tested players and coaches regularly for the virus and teams have been in quarantine for the past week .

  1. When I initially commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added-
    checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I recieve four emails with the exact same comment.
    Is there an easy method you are able to remove me from that service?

    Thanks!
