As per a formal statement straight from Bayern Munich’s web site, Thomas Müller has sadly resulted positive for COVID-19 from the club’s recent round of testing.
Gratefully, he is doing well and is not experiencing any symptoms, however the news still can cause hinder for Bayern as he now could miss the next two Bundesliga games versus Eintracht Frankfurt and then Bayer Leverkusen ahead of the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 facing RB Salzburg.
At the present time, he will be self-isolating away from the rest of the teammates prior he can possibly get negative results and come out of isolation.
He has to quarantine for at least 7 days, but can emerge of isolation if he gets negative tests following the 7 day brink and does not have any symptoms. This is the standard protocol for all players that are vaccinated. This means that Müller could be back on time for the Leverkusen game.
Paradoxically, it was almost a year ago that Müller first caught the virus. He was found testing positive ahead of February.
Currently, Nagelsmann will have one less choice in attack whilst Müller is in isolation, so it becomes mandatory for him to make more adjustments having just lost Corentin Tolisso to injury as well.
