Bayern Munich

Germany machines Bayern Munich have been handed a massive blow with midfielder Joshua Kimmich will play again until 2021. 

Joshua has exited quarantine after testing positive for COVID-19 but will not be available for selection as he is yet to train fully.

“I’m glad the quarantine is over,” said Kimmich, who revealed last month that he was not yet vaccinated.

“I’m doing very well but I cannot train fully yet due to a slight infiltration in my lungs. I will complete rehab and return to full training in January.”

The midfielder is battling lung issues and is expected to miss matches against Mainz 05, VfB Stuttgart, and VfL Wolfsburg.

On quarantine

“I am pleased that my corona-related quarantine is over. I am doing very well, however, due to slight infiltrations in the lungs, I can currently not yet fully train,” Kimmich said.

“I will therefore undergo rehabilitation training and can’t wait to be back in full action in January.”

Bayern are currently on top of the table with 34 points, four above second-placed Borrusia Dortmund.
