Several players tested positive for Bayern Munich’s COVID-19 and had to be discharged from the German team.
European football has performed better against the COVID-19 virus, but that does not mean that they should relax their protocols, because we have already seen in which major leagues like the NFL there have been cases of alleged negligence. Bayern Munich is suffering with positive cases.
In the last hours, the German team have suffered the loss of some key players for their qualifying matches for the UEFA World Cup; fortunately for Die Mannschaft, they are already qualified for Qatar 2022, and nothing is being played.
All the players who tested positive are from Bayern Munich, which affected a teammate who is not part of Bayern Munich. In total, it was four players from the Bavarian team who tested positive.
Niklas Sule, Joshua Kimmich, Serge Gnabry and Jamal Musiala are the four Bayern Munich players who tested positive and were eliminated from the German team’s concentration for the Teutons’ next two games.
One more is in quarantine, it is Karim Adeyemi, who was in contact with Niklas Sule, that’s why he is in quarantine. But another Bayern player is also under observation, but he is not German and is striker Choupo-Moting.
Bayern Munich have suffered with COVID-19 this season
It is the first time that it has had several player casualties due to COVID-19, but that does not mean that Bayern Munich has been 100% free of the virus in its squad. In fact, the squad boss had to miss some games due to this problem.
Julian Nagelsmann tested positive for COVID-19, this after the Bavarian team’s third game in the Champions League, but returned for the fourth match against Benfica in Germany, so Dino Toppmoller, his assistant, had to take over.
Fortunately for the Bayern Munich coach, this FIFA break comes for the World Cup qualifying round, and the players who tested positive will have time to recover or be in quarantine, and it will not affect their season, because otherwise they would be sensitive casualties.
