Jerome Boateng was fined by Bayern Munich for crashing his Mercedes on the highway while driving back from his sick son.
According to German publication BILD, Bayern’s center back returned from Leipzig, where he saw his son Jermar in the hospital.
Boateng drove home near Selbitz, in the north of Bavaria, to Munich, when he was alleged to have been caught off guard during a hailstorm and lost traction on his car without winter tires and slid into the highway barrier.

Local police allege that Boateng, who was reportedly not speeding, was not injured in the crash but caused £ 22,000 in damage to his Mercedes.
However, Bayern has since decided to fine the German defender after leaving Munich without the club’s consent during the corona virus pandemic.
The Bundesliga giants will now donate Boateng’s fine to local hospitals in Munich.
And Boateng has since spoken out about the incident, claiming that he will ‘accept any fine’ because his son’s health is the only thing that matters to him.

Boateng said, “I accept every fine in the world if it’s justified. And I know it was definitely a mistake not notifying the club about my trip, but at that point I was just thinking about my son.
“His health was not good. Of course, if a son calls his father, I still go no matter what time.
“I accept every fine for him, after all, that’s my son. I want to see the father who does not leave at such a time to be with his four-year-old son. I find it sad. ‘
