Bayern Munich boss Carlo Ancelotti has been asked by the German FA to explain the middle finger gesture he made towards Hertha Berlin fans on Saturday.
Ancelotti made the gesture as he walked down the tunnel following a 1-1 drawin Berlin in which his side equalised in the 96th minute.
He told German broadcaster ARD he did it “after being spat at”.
The Italian former Chelsea boss could still face disciplinary action, but has only been asked to submit a statement.
He has until Tuesday afternoon to do so, and the German FA will then decide how to proceed.
