20-year-old football player Melvyn Lorenzen was suspended for a match by his own club after he was caught eating a baguette before the team was about to depart for a football game.

The incident happened last Saturday before the club’s under 23 side was transported to Thuringen for a match.

On noticing the player with the baguette in his hands, coach Alexander Nouri told him not to board the bus.

Explaing the decision, manager Thomas Eichin said that the club gives great importance to the type of nutrition its players get.

The player, who has already played in the Bundesliga and is often selected with the senior squad, was allowed to return to training on Monday.

In the hope, the club said, that he has learnt the lesson.
