After a 2-1 loss to Augsburg on Friday, it has been announced that the Bavarians will be without Serge Gnabry, Jamal Musiala, Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting and Michael Cuisance for Tuesday’s game in Ukraine against the Dynamo of Kiev. In a statement, Bayern said that the players in question are “in quarantine after agreement with local health authorities”, after contact with a person close to the club who tested positive for the new coronavirus.

These weren’t the German champions’ first problems with covid-19 this week: defender Niklas Sule tested positive last week and defender Josip Stanisic and a member of the coaching staff went into isolation after coach Julian Nagelsmann, having tested positive about a month ago, on the eve of a game against Benfica.

Also one of the stars of the team, midfielder Joshua Kimmich, is in isolation for the second week in a row after a risky contact with an infected person. The German international has publicly announced that he has refused to receive the covid-19 vaccine due to fears about its long-term effects.

And, according to the newspaper image, Bayern Munich will have even advanced with salary cuts for players who refused vaccination and missed team commitments because of it, like Kimmich, and that the next step is to remove these players from club activities, putting them to train at part.

Thus, in the case of Kimmich, who receives around 20 million euros a year, the loss will be 384,000 euros a week.

The incidence of covid-19 cases in Germany this week registered a new high on 12 consecutive days, as the country prepares to increase pressure on the unvaccinated.
