"The visit was part of a charity event and had been planned for a long time. However, it was not agreed with the club. Of course I accept the measures taken by the sporting management. That evening, I drank only half a Radler [a beer and lemonade] and then mineral water after that. I drove myself home later on."

suspended by his club VfB Stuttgart for at least one game for attending the Munich Oktoberfest a few hours after a 2-0 loss in which he gave up a soft goal. (Independent)
