Flick hopes Thomas Mueller will return to Bayern soon
Hansi Flick, technical director of Bayern Munich, expressed his hope that the star of the team, Thomas Müller, who is infected with the new Coronavirus “Covid-19”, will return to the stadiums soon.
On Sunday, Flick revealed that he had a telephone conversation with Mueller, who returned from Doha to Germany on a plane other than the plane on which the Bavarian team returned after participating in the Club World Cup in Doha, and he did not give details about the health condition of Mueller, who entered stone yet. He arrived in Munich late on Friday evening, after his injury was confirmed in Doha.
Flick added that quarantine and isolation is difficult, given that Mueller is a person who loves to communicate a lot, and added that he had included Mueller in the team meeting via video.
The result of the test that Mueller conducted in Doha on Wednesday was positive, and as a result, he was dismissed, as he missed the final match of the tournament in which Bayern beat Tigress of Mexico with a clean goal last Thursday.
Pictures of “Bild” newspaper showed the 31-year-old former international player leaving an ambulance at Munich Airport late on Friday evening, wearing a white protective suit, and his condition is believed to be good so far.
Muller will in any case be absent from his team’s match against Armenia Belfield on Monday and against Eintracht Frankfurt next Saturday. Flick did not specify whether Mueller would be able to participate in the team’s match against Lazio Roma on the twenty-third of this month in the first leg of the Champions League round of sixteen. Flick only said: He is a very important player and we hope that he returns as soon as possible to be available for the team.
