Ivory Coast international Salomon Kalou has been suspended by Hertha Berlin for breaking “fundamental rules” of the German club after posting several videos from the team’s dressing room on Facebook.
The club said the 34-year-old winger displayed a behaviour that does not correspond with the ongoing health crisis and internal regulations of the club.
Soon after the announcement, Ivory Coast football federation said it was unhappy with the player’s attitude which was contrary to what he is known for.
“We, as his administrative parents, condemn and regret such behaviour which brings little honour to our football community at a time when there is a global health crisis.
“We hope he and his club will find a solution soon and that such act will not be repeated in the future,” the body said.
Kalou has publicly apologised to Hertha Berlin for his “attitude that showed I did not take the Coronavirus seriously.”
