On Sunday for spitting on an opponent the previous day, Borussia Moenchengladbach fined striker Marcus Thuram a month’s salary, to be paid to a charity.

“Marcus has accepted this and has also offered to engage with this social cause on his behalf,” sporting director Max Eberl of the club said in a statement.

After a video analysis showed him spitting in the face of Hoffenheim’s Stefan Posch as the two argued during a Bundesliga match, Thuram was sent off.

Hoffenheim scored a late goal with Gladbach down to 10 men and won 2-1.

“Today something took place that is not in my character and must never happen.” After the game, Thuram, a 23-year-old international from France, posted on Instagram adding that the spit “occurred accidentally and not intentionally.”

“I apologize to everyone, to Stefan Posch, to my opponents, to my team-mates, to my family, and to all those who saw my reaction.”

Thuram is facing a long ban from the German Football Association in addition to the club fine.

“On Sunday morning, Eberl said he had a “long talk” with Thuram and that the player was “devastated”.

“Thuram, “told me that he accidentally spat after swearing several times in French in the heat of the moment during a fight with Stefan Posch. He recognizes that this does not change anything and that the pictures speak for themselves, and that the sending off was the right call,” Eberl said.
