Augsburg goalkeeper Marwin Hitz says he will pay the bill for damaging Cologne’s penalty spot at the weekend with the money to go to a local children’s hospital.

Hitz was spotted damaging the penalty spot at the RheinEnergieStadion on Saturday shortly before Anthony Modeste slipped in the run-up for his spot-kick during Augsburg’s 1-0 victory.

Raul Bobadilla scored six minutes after Modeste’s slip with Hitz’s antics gaining international attention.

While Hitz avoided sanctions from the Bundesliga, Cologne later sent Hitz a bill for the damage done to the penalty spot.

“I will happily pay the bill even if they sent it as a bit of a joke and even if I think our groundsman would have repaired the penalty spot a bit quicker,” he said.

“When it comes to where the money should be going, I would like to thank Koln for their suggestion. I would like to make my annual charity donation to the children’s hospital in the Amsterdamer Strasse in Koln.”
