After the game in Mönchengladbach, the police escorted the FC Bayern team buses through a rescue lane to the motorway exit – although this is forbidden. Now she has apologized for it.

It is understandable that the FC Bayern team only wanted to leave after the game in Mönchengladbach. Coach Julian Nagelsmann’s team lost 2:3 and the atmosphere must have been in the basement. At first it didn’t look as if the record champions could quickly leave the place of bankruptcy. Due to an accident on the A52, a backlog had formed up to the stadium. But the Bavarians were lucky: The police quickly escorted the bus to the motorway entrance and used the emergency lane that the drivers had formed. There was a bit of a fuss on social media about it. Not entirely wrong: Driving through the rescue lane is prohibited, except for emergency services such as the fire brigade and ambulance.

As the police now sheepishly admitted, it was indeed a mistake that should not have happened. “There were instructions not to do that. How it came about must now be worked out internally,” said a police spokesman for the German Press Agency about the faux pas that the “Rheinische Post” had uncovered.

Officials ignore instruction on FC Bayern buses

Accordingly, the operations manager had expressly instructed that the Bayern buses would not receive any extra sausage. There was no time pressure anyway, the destination was Mönchengladbach Airport. A police spokesman confirmed that it should now be clarified internally why the officials ignored the instruction or whether it did not reach them. The police officers concerned do not have to fear any suspension for the time being, the police also said.

Anyone driving through a rescue lane without permission commits an administrative offence. Penalties include a fine or even a driving ban. It depends on whether someone is hindered, endangered or damaged. A fine could now threaten the police officers and the bus drivers of the two buses.
