Augsburg boss Heiko Herrlich will miss the Bundesliga restart after breaking quarantine rules by leaving the team hotel to buy toothpaste.
Herrlich confirmed the news in a news conference on Thursday.
Speaking at a video conference, he said: ‘’I have no toothpaste and then I went to a supermarket.’’
The German Bundesliga is set to resume this weekend. All the teams preparing for the Bundesliga to restart have been in quarantine.
‘’I made a mistake by leaving the hotel,’’ Herrlich said in a statement.
‘’Even though I have followed all hygiene measures both when leaving the hotel and otherwise, I cannot undo this. In this situation, I was not able to act as a role model for my team and the public.
‘’I will therefore be consistent and stand by my mistake. Because of this misconduct, I will not be leading the training on Friday and I will not be in charge of the team against Wolfsburg on Saturday.’’
Augsburg sit 14th in the Bundesliga table, 5 points above the relegation zone.
