Bayern Munich midfielder Corentin Tolisso would have loved to be on the pitch with his teammates as they celebrated a 4-1 revenge victory over Hoffenheim, but a poor decision to get a tattoo — while not wearing a mask — left him suspended and fined.

Getting a tattoo is among the activities that the DFL has urged players against during the COVID-19 pandemic. The fact that he was pictured without a mask while getting the tattoo only made things worse.

The talented 2018 World Cup winner admitted his mistake via Twitter and apologized:

While Tolisso owned his mistake and accepted his punishment, Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick also acknowledged that he was ready to move on from the mini-controversy.

“(Bayern Munich sporting director) Hasan (Salihamidzic) said everything,” Flick remarked (as captured by Tz). “That’s an absolute no-go. He’s very sorry it happened; you can’t undo it. I talked to him.”
