Bayern Munich withdrew Joshua Kimmich’s (right), and the four other Bayern Munich players, last month. This was part of their self-isolation as unvaccinated individuals refusing to pay them for any training sessions or matches they missed.

“It’s pure selfishness,” said one unnamed official. 

“The managers and other players have had enough. If matches are called off, or we return behind closed doors, fans will get sick. They are entitled to it.”

Bayern was getting tough. Serge Gnabry and Joshua Kimmich, Jamal Musiala Eric Maxim Choupo–Moting, Jamal Musiala and Michael Cuisance all received notices that they would face a fine for any absences they had caused.
