Hertha Berlin coach Lucien Favre on Thursday indefinitely suspended ex-Germany Under-21 midfielder Patrick Ebert, who is under police investigation after three cars were damaged in Berlin.

Ebert, 22, has helped put Hertha four points clear at the top of the Bundesliga, but was questioned by police early Wednesday morning after three cars were damaged as he walked home from his birthday celebrations.

He will now miss Hertha’s Bundesliga clash with VfB Stuttgart on Saturday.

“Patrick will train with the amateur team for a while,” Favre told German tabloid Bild.

“I can’t yet say for how long for at this stage, but in any case, he will not be in the team against Stuttgart.”

Ebert and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Kevin Prince Boateng, who is on loan to Dortmund, were both questioned by police over the damaged cars and have denied the allegations.
