FC Bayern must do without Mazraoui for the moment: Slight inflammation of the pericardium

Consequences of corona disease

FC Bayern have to do without full-back Noussair Mazraoui for the time being. As the German record champions reported on Friday, the 25-year-old has been diagnosed with « mild inflammation of the pericardium ». The Moroccan tested positive for the corona virus during the World Cup in Qatar in early December. This is why he missed the quarter-final against Portugal (1-0), indicated the Munich team. However, Mazraoui was back in the starting XI in the semi-final against France.

A follow-up examination after the World Cup in Munich then revealed the inflammation of the pericardium, which the right-back is now believed to be treating. Mazraoui, who was signed from Ajax Amsterdam on a free transfer last summer, will also miss training camp in Qatar. According to information from « Bild », he should « initially be at least four to six weeks old ». Midfielder Marcel Sabitzer (28) was also absent from the flight to Doha due to flu.

Alphonso Davies (22) had to take a break for several months at the beginning of last year due to inflammation of the heart muscle after a corona infection. With the recently unemployed Dutch national player Daley Blind (32), the Munich team signed an alternative defensive player on Thursday.
