After testing positive for COVID-19 in Qatar and missing the final of the Club World Cup, Thomas Müller is now back in Munich. The Bayern Munich star has taken to Instagram to address his supporters.
In a short video Müller said, “Hello people, these last few days were very turbulent. I wanted to thank you sincerely for the well-wishes, for the support, that I have received. Thank you very much for that. I am doing fine so far.”
Hansi Flick has made sure to keep Müller included in team meetings and discussions. He said to Bild: “I can hardly imagine Thomas Müller in quarantine or isolation. He is a guy that really likes a lot of interaction. This morning [Sunday] we had a team meeting and I brought him with on FaceTime so that he knows what is going on here. He is a very important player for us. We hope that he comes back to full strength and that he will be available as soon as possible.”
At the very least, Müller must stay in isolation for 10 days. However, according to the rules set forth by the DFL, Müller will need to remain in isolation for 14 days after his first symptoms. If this is the case, Bayern will be without their vice-captain for the Bundesliga matches against Arminia Bielefeld and Eintracht Frankfurt and the first leg of the Champions League matchup against Lazio.
We wish the Raumdeuter a full and quick recovery!
