Müller tests positive for COVID-19 and misses the Final

Sky reported on Thursday morning that Thomas Müller has tested positive for coronavirus (Covid-19) and, also, he will miss a final clash that may serve Bayern Munich to equal the FC Barcelona sexteth in 2009.

Bayern suffered a second last-minute casualty ahead of the Club World Cup final to be played on Thursday against UANL Tigres after Jerome Boateng was granted permission to leave the Bundesliga champion’s camp in Qatar following the tragic death of his 25-year-old ex-girlfriend.

Everything indicates that the entire squad of the German team will have to pass the relevant tests again before finally being able to play the game against the Mexican team at the Education City Stadium in the Qatari capital of Doha. At the moment, the German media did not report more cases in the Bayern ranks, so everything indicates that the final, at this time, is not in danger. Anyway, we will have to wait for the final results since Goretzka and Javi Martínez could not be in the emirate either, having contracted the virus.

Bayern coach Hansi Flick has players like Jamal Musiala or Serge Gnabry to make up for the loss of a player who seems key within the Munich scheme. Müller was going through his sweetest moment in recent years and has a total of 13 goals and 14 assists so far this season, leaving an important void facing one of the most important matches in the recent history of the club.
