Next Bayern stars positive |
Kimmich and Müller have Corona!
The corona virus continues to cause problems for Bavaria!
On Saturday evening, the record champions announced in a press release of just 30 words that Joshua Kimmich (27) and Thomas Müller (33) had tested positive.
Accordingly, the two national players are symptom-free. Kimmich and Müller are in domestic isolation.
There are cases three and four at Bayern within just ten days! On September 21, Manuel Neuer (36) and Leon Goretzka (27) had positive tests. The duo then had to leave the national team’s camp in Frankfurt and were allowed to return to Munich’s team training last Tuesday.
Now it hits the next stars with Kimmich and Müller. It is still unclear how long the duo will be missing from the record champions. However, a game in the Champions League group game against the top Czech club Viktoria Pilsen on Tuesday (6.45 p.m.) is out of the question, as Bavarian law requires them to remain in quarantine for five days. It is questionable whether Kimmich and Müller will be allowed to play again in the league cracker in Dortmund next Saturday (6.30 p.m.). Since they are symptom-free, they should leave the quarantine by Friday at the latest.
Curious: Both Kimmich and Müller already had the virus. For Müller it is even the third time!
Kimmich had resisted vaccination for a long time after the corona vaccines were approved. The midfielder justified this with the lack of long-term studies and wanted to wait for a so-called dead vaccine. At the end of November 2021, Kimmich was finally infected with Corona, then fell out with lung problems (slight infiltration of the lungs) for the rest of the year. According to BILD information, the national player has now been vaccinated.
spicy: Kimmich and Müller were in the starting XI in the 4-0 win against Leverkusen on Friday evening. Although both tested negative at the time, it cannot be ruled out that they were already contagious during the game. Müller even sat with Goretzka in the doping room for many minutes and spoke to journalists without a mask. Masks are no longer compulsory inside the Allianz Arena.
