Joshua Kimmich will miss Bayern Munich’s Bundesliga match at Augsburg on Friday as he is self-isolating after coming into close contact with someone who may have coronavirus.
Julian Nagelsmann on Thursday revealed that Kimmich missed training as a precautionary measure as Bayern awaited the results of his PCR test.
The Bundesliga champions confirmed on Friday that Kimmich, Niklas Sule and Josip Stanisic are in isolation.
Germany midfielder Kimmich, who has publicly confirmed he has not yet received either dose of his vaccine, had recently been forced into isolation along with Serge Gnabry and Jamal Musiala due to being in close contact with Niklas Sule.
Sule withdrew from the Germany squad to face Liechtenstein and Armenia after he tested positive for COVID-19.
Croatia defender Stanisic’s positive test was revealed this week following his return from international duty.
Next stop: Augsburg!

Nagelsmann stated that Kimmich had come into close contact with an individual “in his private sphere” who may have the virus.
Kicker reported that Kimmich, Gnabry and Musiala – who are all unvaccinated – are being split up for the rest of the Bayern squad due a spike in COVID-19 cases.
Kingsley Coman misses the clash with Augsburg due to a minor muscle problem.
