Thomas Muller OUT of Club World Cup final after Bayern Munich star tests positive for coronavirus

THOMAS MULLER will miss Bayern Munich's Club World Cup final with Tigres on Thursday having tested positive for coronavirus.

The German will now spend ten days in isolation while his team-mates compete for the trophy in Doha.

A Bayern statement read: "Thomas Müller, 31, has tested positive for coronavirus at the FIFA Club World Cup in Doha and was promptly isolated.

"Following his return to Munich, he will immediately go into quarantine. FC Bayern has agreed this with the relevant authorities.

"The whole FC Bayern team was tested again on Thursday. There were no further positive cases."

Eric Chupo-Moting is likely to replace the German international in Hansi Flick's side for the game which kicks off at 6pm UK time on February 11.

 

Muller played in his side's 2-0 semi-final win over Al Ahly and was replaced by Chupo-Moting in the second-half.

Flick will also be without the Bayern icon for their next two Bundesliga games.

He will miss their match against Arminia and Eintracht Frankfurt.

The Germans then face Lazio in the last-16 of the Champions League on February 23.
