Serge Gnabry and Jamal Musiala are among four Bayern Munich players to be sent into quarantine after coming into close contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Michael Cuisance are the other two players also now quarantining.

This increases the impact of COVID-19 on the Bayern first-team squad, after head coach Julian Nagelsmann said Joshua Kimmich was self-isolating on Friday. Bayern face a trip to Dynamo Kyiv on Tuesday before hosting Arminia Bielefeld next weekend.

A Bayern statement on Sunday read: “Serge Gnabry, Jamal Musiala, Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting and Michael Cuisance have gone into quarantine following consultation with the health authorities.

“They came into contact with someone in the immediate circle of the FC Bayern team who tested positive for coronavirus.”

Gnabry, Musiala and Choupo-Moting all played in Bayern’s 2-1 defeat to Augsburg on Friday night.

Josip Stanisic missed that game after testing positive for COVID-19 two days before. The club said the defender is fully vaccinated.

Niklas Sule also missed the Augsburg loss due to self-isolation. Sule, who is also fully vaccinated, tested positive for COVID-19 on November 2. Kimmich, Gnabry, Musiala and Choupo-Moting were all forced into quarantine by Sule’s positive test.
