Corona infection of the coach: Nagelsmann also misses next Bayern game

On Wednesday evening, Julian Nagelsmann had to watch from a hotel room in Lisbon as his team won 4-0 over Benfica at the Estádio da Luz. Now it is clear why the coach of FC Bayern Munich before the third preliminary round of the Champions League flu symptoms have occurred.

He has tested positive for Covid-19 - "despite complete vaccination protection", as his association communicated on Thursday morning in a short message on its own website. It also says that Nagelsmann will fly "separately from the team with an ambulance plane" to Munich and will immediately go into "domestic isolation".

It is uncertain when Nagelsmann, 34 years old, will be released from house quarantine again. On the website of the City of Munich, the Corona section under the heading "Regulations for fully vaccinated" says that a person who has tested positive with a PCR test "usually has to stay in isolation for five days".

Afterwards, this can be canceled with a negative PCR test - under one condition: You must have been symptom–free during this time. This is not the case with Nagelsmann. At least according to Wednesday's statement. His assistant and representative, Dino Toppmöller, said after the game that"Julian (...) is sick“.

The Bundesliga home game against Hoffenheim next Saturday(15.30 Clock in the F.A.Z.-Live ticker to the Bundesliga and Sky) Nagelsmann will therefore miss safely. And possibly also the away games against Borussia Mönchengladbach (27 October, DFB Cup) and Union Berlin (30 October, Bundesliga).

And the rest of the crew? On F.A.Z. request, a spokesman for FC Bayern said that the positive test of Nagelsmann for players and coaches who had traveled with him to Lisbon, initially had no consequences. In Munich, the coaching assistants Dino Toppmöller and Xaver Zembrod will take over the preparation for the duel against Hoffenheim with the video analyst Benjamin Glück.

Where one can assume that Nagelsmann will also get involved. He did the same on Wednesday. From his hotel room he ordered a change over the radio, which was decisive for the outcome of the game. In the 66th minute, it was still 0-0, the striker Serge Gnabry came for the defender Benjamin Pavard. Just 18 minutes later, Munich led 4-0. And before the first and second goals, Gnabry had his feet in the game.
