The decision not to get vaccinated continues to take its toll on Joshua Kimmich. After three consecutive quarantines, the first two for being close contact and the last after testing positive for Covid, the Bayern Munich player announced on his social networks that he will not return to the pitch until 2022. Despite testing negative in a PCR this Wednesday and having been able to get out of quarantine, the player continues to suffer the consequences of a bug that has attacked the footballer’s lung.

“I’m fine and yesterday I put the very long quarantine period behind me. I can’t wait to get back on track and be with the team.. However, I still have to be patient for a while as I am still unable to put my body under such a load due to slight infiltration into the lungs. I will watch the three remaining games this year from the couch and then we will attack together again in January, “explained the German international through his Instagram account.

It should be remembered that Kimmich turned the entire country upside down when he decided to make public his decision not to be vaccinated for fear “of the possible long-term effects“That the coronavirus has hit him with such force is the best example that the Covid also leaves its mark on young people like Kimmich himself, an elite athlete of only 26 years old. For this reason, the club hopes that he will reconsider and finish getting vaccinated. “We are on the right track,” explained manager Julian Nagelsmann about it.
