After catching Covid, Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann was obliged to work from home in order to prepare for the match against Monchengladbach.
After testing positive for Covid-19, JULIAN NAGELSMANN has been working from home.
Last week, the Bayern Munich coach had a positive test ahead of his team’s Champions League match against Benfica.
His team thrashed the Portuguese side 4-0, with assistant Dino Toppmoller on the bench.
It took until the 70th minute for Bayern to make a breakthrough.
However, Leroy Sane’s punch triggered a chain reaction.
Before Robert Lewandowski got involved, Everton Soares scored an own goal.
With six minutes remaining, Sane completed the rout.
Nagelsmann, 34, was forced to watch from home as he was isolated, with Toppmoller providing orders from the sidelines.

And the German has carried on with his work from the comfort of his living room.
For Saturday’s match against Hoffenheim, he and Toppmoller made the same arrangement, with the same result.
Serge Gnabry scored the game’s first goal barely 16 minutes in, before Lewandowski doubled the lead on the half-hour mark.
Former Stoke striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored from the bench late on to make it 3-0, before Kingsley Coman completed the onslaught.
Nagelsmann, who is still isolated, finished his media obligations today from home, sporting a blue and white striped jersey and smiled into his computer webcam in preparation for tomorrow’s match against Monchengladbach.
Despite being fully vaccinated, Nagelsmann tested positive, according to Bayern.
However, this does not apply to all of his players.
Joshua Kimmich admitted to having doubts about the jab’s long-term safety, but said he wouldn’t rule it out in the future.
In February of this year, I advised that footballers be vaccinated as soon as possible because they serve as role models for everyone else.
As a ‘role model,’ Bayern veteran Karl-Heinz Rummenigge urged Kimmich to take the shot as quickly as possible.
He stated, ” “First and foremost, I’d like to express my admiration for Kimmich as a Bundesliga player.
“I also know him to be a wonderful person. It came as no surprise that he had not been immunized. This has sparked a massive debate.
“In February of this year, I advised that footballers be vaccinated as soon as possible because they serve as role models for the rest of us. That is why I have received such harsh criticism. It’s now a little different.
“Joshua is being responsible by waiting to see if there are any long-term ill effects for himself, but as a role model, it would be preferable if he were vaccinated.
“Because he is such a responsible athlete, I am confident that he will get immunized soon.”
