A few hours before the final of the Club World Cup, it was announced that Thomas Müller will not be able to participate against Tigres for being positive for covid-19
Bayern will not be able to count on Thomas Müller in the final of the Club World Cup against Tigres on Thursday due to a positive for coronavirus, according to information from German media that assure that there will be a confirmation from FIFA shortly.
Müller reportedly has no symptoms and is well.
The midfielder is considered one of Bayern’s key players and this season has played 28 of 29 official games in which he has scored 12 goals and provided 16 assists.
Müller is also a kind of messenger for coach Hansi Flick on the field, he is constantly giving instructions to his teammates and usually leads the high pressure to recover the ball.
Among the candidates to replace him today are Jamal Musiala, Corentin Tolisso and Leroy Sané.
According to the magazine “Sport Bild“Müller underwent three tests. The first was positive, the second negative and the third tested positive again.
The rest of the tests of the Bayern players came back negative.
The positives of Javi Martínez and Leon Goretzka, who did not travel to Qatar, are already from a while ago, so contagion through that route is unlikely.
