Leipzig apologise for ejecting Japanese fans

RB Leipzig on Monday apologised after forcing a group of Japanese spectators to leave their Red Bull Arena during the weekend's 1-1 draw with Bayer Leverkusen over coronavirus fears. In a statement, Leipzig said that their security staff "had been instructed to intensify checks" of "certain groups due to potential risk". "Unfortunately ... amidst the great uncertainty surrounding this topic ... a mistake was made on our part," the statement continued. "We would like to extend our apologies." Leipzig added that they were trying to contact the fans, reportedly as many as 20, in order to invite them to their next home game. While not as badly affected as nearby Italy, cases of coronavirus in Germany rose to 157 on Monday, up from 129 the previous day. -- Afp
