Dortmund apologise for violation of Covid guidelines by fans and players

Borussia Dortmund has issued an apology on behalf of fans and players of the club after there was a violation of coronavirus guideline during their celebration of the Revierderby win over Schalke 04.

“With all the understandable joy of winning the derby, there were public violations of the Coronavirus rules during the team’s return to the training ground last night, which will not be tolerated,” the club statement said.

“Around 150-200 fans cheered the team outside the training ground, some of whom were not wearing masks and observing social distancing guidelines. Players celebrated with the fans – without leaving the bus – and in the exuberance some even filmed it.

“We can only apologise and promise to talk to the police and all those involved very soon about how such scenes can be completely ruled out in public in future.”

Erling Haaland’s brace, one of which is an acrobatic volley and a goal each from Jadon Sancho and Raphael Guerreiro secured their 4-0 over Schalke 04 in what could be the last Revierderby in the Bundesliga for a while with Schalke battling relegation and unlikely to survive.
