Jerome BoatengÂ has labelledÂ Bayern Munich'sÂ decision to fine him for visiting his sick son duringÂ coronavirusÂ quarantine as 'sad'.
The German defender broke government rules by leaving Munich to take the four-hour trip to see son Jermar, 4, in a hospital in Leipzig.
Boateng was said to have been caught in a hailstorm, which led to his car skidding off the motorway and into a crash barrier, causing Â£22,000 worth of damage to his vehicle.
Bayern issued a fine to Boateng as they ruled he had "transgressed the guidelines issued by the club by being too far away from his home."
The centre-back - who escaped the crash unscathed - has since responded by accepting his fine, but justified his actions with a swipe at the club.
