Images have surfaced on social media this week of the Dortmund without masks, which are required according to the strict rules in Germany.

There were reports that there were four other Dortmund players who broke the lockdown rules, but there was no evidence.

The DFL statement read:

"The DFL fines Manuel Akanji and Jadon Sancho. The Borussia Dortmund players had apparently violated general hygiene and infection protection standards at home hairdressing appointments, and in particular the medical and organisational concept of the DFL task force "Sports Medicine / Special Game Operations".

"There is no question that professional footballers have to have their hair cut. However, this currently has to be done in accordance with the medical-organisational concept. In specific cases, the club had also provided its players with a corresponding opportunity.

"In principle, the DFL does not provide any information about the amount of a penalty in contractual penalty proceedings. Players have the right to lodge a complaint within five days. The penalties are expressly not directed against the club, for which no "organisational fault" is recognisable."
