The Austrian police are concerned with an incident during the Hertha BSC training camp. "We can confirm that the police are investigating one of our players, but we ask for your understanding that no further details can be given out of consideration for the ongoing investigations," said the second division soccer team on Sunday.

The "Bild" newspaper reported on a physical altercation in an inn on Saturday evening, as a result of which a Hertha professional was said to have been taken into custody on Sunday. As the police in Zell am See said when asked, "both detention cells are empty" in the station at the holiday resort. As the German Press Agency learned, the affected player is currently back in the team hotel.

The Berliners won their first test match on Saturday against the newly promoted Belgian first division team RWD Molenbeek 2-1 in Leogang. Another test against the Belgian champions Royal Antwerpen in Saalfelden is scheduled for Sunday (1 p.m.). The training camp of the Berliners in Austria ends next Friday.
