Bayern Coach, Nagelsmann, Tests Positive Of COVID-19

Bayern Munich affirmed Thursday that head coach, Julian Nagelsmann, has tested positive for Covid-19 despite the fact that he is completely immunized, having already sat out their Champions League win at Benfica with sickness. 

"Julian Nagelsmann has tested positive for the Covid regardless of being completely vaccinated," the German giants said in a statement.

"He will get back to Munich separately from the team by air ambulance and will seclude at home." 

Nagelsmann missed Wednesday's 4-0 thrashing of Benfica in Lisbon after being taken ill and his assistant coaches Dino Toppmoeller and Xaver Zembrod took over obligations on the seat. Bayern have not said how long the 34-year-old will be sidelined.

Bayern showed they can win without Nagelsmann with Leroy Sane scoring twice in Lisbon as the Germans opened a five-point gap at the top of Group E.

They are also a point clear at the top of the Bundesliga table before Saturday’s home game against Hoffenheim.
