The 31-year-old German later apologized to the ball boy but was still jeered by Bournemouth fans for the rest of the match.

“I don’t know if it was instruction or not, but the ball boys were always delaying," Fulham manager Marco Silva said. "Bernd wanted to play quickly and he took the ball from the ball boy. He didn’t push him, it wasn’t strong enough and he apologized.”
