FC Bayern, News: Another corona case at FCB
FC Bayern Munich apparently has another corona case to complain about. According to information in the image, goalkeeper coach Toni Tapalovic also tested positive for the virus on Wednesday. The newspaper did not provide any further information on the state of health of the 41-year-old man. Confirmation from the club was still pending.
FCB previously reported that previously unvaccinated players Joshua Kimmich and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting tested positive for the virus. “The FC Bayern midfielder is doing well,” the club wrote of Kimmich’s infection.
The national player had provoked heated discussions in recent weeks because he was not vaccinated against the virus. As an unvaccinated contact person for a person infected with the coronavirus, the 26-year-old was in quarantine anyway and missed the FC Augsburg derby (1: 2) and the Champions League group game at Dynamo Kiev on Tuesday (2: 1). Back from Kiev, Kimmich’s club colleague Choupo-Moting had also found a positive test, Choupo-Moting was also in quarantine.
Shortly before the report to Kimmich, there were signs that he was about to be vaccinated. “I think Jo is going in the direction of vaccination,” said national coach Hansi Flick on Wednesday afternoon: “In the future, I think there will be no other way.”

FC Bayern, News: Rummenigge wants variety
Michael Rummenigge is hoping for a little more excitement in the Bundesliga title race. The brother of longtime FCB president Karl-Heinz Rummenigge would also have nothing against another champion.
“Overall: Bayern are number 1, Dortmund are number 2 – the quality of the squad also reflects this ranking. But as pleasant as ten championships in a row for Munich are, the Bundesliga would also make a change at the top.” A writes Rummenigge in his kicker column. However, BVB must “play well regularly” to do this.
Dortmund remained in the Bundesliga, thanks to victories at work against Cologne and Stuttgart, in the turn of Bayern, but in the Champions League, BVB suffered a serious setback with their 3-1 defeat at Sporting Lisbon and the associated absence of the round of 16.
