Hamburg ban Leistner for "assaulting a spectator"

 Hamburg defender Toni Leistner has been banned for five games for "assaulting a spectator" of his former club Dynamo Dresden after his side's 4-1 German Cup defeat on Monday.

Two games of his ban are suspended for a year, while he was also fined 8,000 euros (£7,300).

The German Football Association (DFB) said Leistner, 30, was "insulted several times by a Dresden spectator".

The player then went into the stands and "physically attacked him".

Leistner also breached coronavirus protocol in the stadium by going into the stand.

"As a result, he has exposed himself and possibly third parties to the risk of infection with the coronavirus," the DFB added.

About 10,000 fans watched the game in Dresden - the biggest attendance in Germany since the coronavirus lockdown.

Dynamo condemned the supporter allegedly involved, saying it is "shameful" Leistner had been offended by a fan of his "home club".
