Herrlich, 48, was appointed on 10 March and the home match with Wolfsburg was set to be his first in charge.


“Even though I have followed all hygiene measures both when leaving the hotel and otherwise, I cannot undo this,” he said. “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 will not be in charge of the team against Wolfsburg on Saturday.”


Speaking at a video news conference earlier, he had said: “I have no toothpaste and then I went to a supermarket.”
