Striker Kevin Volland of 1. FC Union Berlin has been suspended for three championship games by the sports court of the German Football Association (DFB) and must also pay a fine of 15,000 euros. This was announced by the DFB on Thursday. The 31-year-old newcomer to the Köpenicker had been sent off by referee Daniel Schlager in the 64th minute of the league match against RB Leipzig (0:3) last Sunday, after he had rudely fouled Leipzig center-back Mohamed Simakan.
