Premier League players urged not to copy ex-Man City star Boyata after he planted smacker on team-mate – The Sun

THIS is the mad moment former Manchester City star Dedryck Boyata broke coronavirus rules by KISSING a team-mate on football’s return from lockdown.

Boyata planted a smacker on on-loan Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic in Hertha Berlin’s 3-0 behind-closed-doors Bundesliga win at Hoffenheim.

But, incredibly, he was defended by his coach and will not face any punishment — despite Augsburg boss Heiko Herrlich being banned for leaving his team’s hotel to buy toothpaste and skin cream.

Borussia Monchengladbach's Marcus Thuram – son of France legend Lilian – was also seen appearing to kiss a team-mate.

Thuram looked to peck his fellow player on the cheek after scoring his side's second against Frankfurt.

Any contact outside of challenges is banned – and subs have even been made to sit two metres apart.

Boyata’s moment of stupidity came on the day Watford boss Nigel Pearson raised fears of a Covid-19 death in the Premier League, claiming: “People are closing their eyes to the threat. God forbid we have a fatality.”
