FC Köln striker Anthony Modeste will not be sanctioned for a self-promotion goal celebration that will take place in the 31st round of the 2021/22 Bundesliga.

After review, the DFB Sports Court have opted not to punish Cologne’s Anthony Modeste for a goal celebration on Matchday 31 which saw the French striker brandish a brand of his coffee produced in front of the broadcast cameras of the DFL. The disciplinary branch of the DFB announced an investigation into the action the day after the denunciation of the act by the coach and the club of Modeste.

The 34-year-old will instead receive a warning that he should ‘refrain from such behaviour’ in the future. Modeste himself made it clear that he didn’t feel like the celebration was an act of self-promotion afterwards. Calling it “a thank you to everyone who believed in me”, the team’s top scorer denied he was actively trying to sell anything.
