It was only at the beginning of this week that Kimmich came back from quarantine after a positive test by Niklas Süle. Now Kimmich needs a new quarantine. As Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann explained, this is purely a precautionary measure. “He had contact with a corona suspect in his private environment. That has not yet been confirmed. We’re still waiting for the PCR result, ”emphasized the Bayern coach. The midfielder was therefore also absent from the final training session on Thursday.
Then it can also be decided whether Kimmich can play in the Bundesliga game against Augsburg on Friday evening; in the worst case, he would have to be in quarantine again as a contact person. The duration is open. If Kimmich is actually isolated from the team, the Bayern kicker would also miss the Champions League game against Dynamo Kiev as an unvaccinated professional. In any case, Nagelsmann was annoyed by the Corona situation: “It annoys and occupies you. Nobody asks anything about Augsburg, we’re just talking about the pandemic. “
