Brussels: Standard Liege player Obbi Oulare was one of five people fined over the weekend for having a bakery that violates coronavirus laws, Belgian media reported on Monday.
A fine of 250 euros ($ 272) each was imposed for violating convention restrictions as Hasselt city police, about 60km from Liege, were forced to disperse.
Oulare confirmed the incident but told Het Nieuwsblad police they were furious.
"We did not have a party but apparently the neighbors were calling the police. I don't think I did anything wrong. I understand that the police are doing their job but not to protect them," a newspaper said.
Oulare, who played for Belgium under-21s and was a member of Club Brugge's youth team, signed for Watford in 2015 but played twice in the Premier League before returning to Belgium.
Belgium has been badly hit by the epidemic of coronavirus, with some 3,600 dead.
