Bayern Munich revealed on Thursday that head coach Julian Nagelsmann has tested positive for Covid-19, despite being fully vaccinated. Nagelsmann missed Bayern’s Champions League victory against Benfica on Wednesday due to sickness. “Despite being properly vaccinated, Julian Nagelsmann has tested positive for the coronavirus,” the Bayern Munich announced in a statement. “He will fly back to Munich separately from the rest of the team and isolate at home.” Nagelsmann was forced to sit out Wednesday’s 4-0 thrashing of Benfica in Lisbon due to illness, and his assistant coaches Dino Toppmoeller and Xaver Zembrod filled in. Bayern has not stated how long the 34-year-old will be sidelined. Before the November international break, the squad has a hectic schedule with five games in the next two weeks. Anyone who tests positive for Covid in Bavaria is required to stay in home isolation for a fortnight under existing regulations.
