Mazraoui sidelined after Covid-19
Noussair Mazraoui was not able to fly with the Bayern team to Doha on Friday as they prepare for the second half of the season at their training camp. The 25-year-old Morocco international tested positive for Covid-19 during the World Cup in December, meaning he missed the quarter-final against Portugal. During a follow-up examination in Munich after the World Cup, FC Bayern team doctor Professor Dr. Roland Schmidt diagnosed a mild inflammation of the pericardium, which the defender will now cure. This means that Mazraoui will not be available to coach Julian Nagelsmann for the time being.
Sabitzer also currently out
Midfielder Marcel Sabitzer also wasn’t on the flight to Doha due to flu.
