BERLIN – Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich will not receive a salary from the club during the quarantine. The Bild daily reported on Sunday. The newspaper, referring to a source from the club, stated that Bayern presidents, in addition to Kimmich, will not pay the wages of the other four players who had to go into quarantine during the quarantine.
The report stated that the club is also considering imposing further sanctions. Kimmich refuses to be vaccinated and the club is said to consider that if he does not, he will not be allowed into the team’s training facilities. He wants to put more pressure on his players to be vaccinated. Bayern has not commented on the report yet. In addition to Kimmich, Serge Gnabry, Jamal Musiala and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting are also in quarantine. They had to self-isolate after coming into close contact with their teammate Niklas Sol, who had a positive coronavirus test.
Kimmich has been placed in quarantine for the second time in a short time, this time in private contact with a close person. So he had to miss Friday’s Bayern game in Augsburg and he will also miss the Champions League duel with Dynamo Kiev.
Vaccination is not mandatory for German footballers, but controversy over Kimmich’s problems and the rapid rise in the number of infections in Germany has raged. Many politicians have called for mandatory vaccinations for players.
