Kimmich, Musiala, Gnabry, Choupo-Moting and Cuisance, not vaccinated, have been informed by the club that, if positive or in quarantine, they will not be paid in the days of absence
The pressure rises. For a couple of months, in Germany, the numbers of coronavirus infections have been rising, which is why many said they were outraged by Joshua Kimmich’s decision not to get vaccinated. “For me they shouldn’t even allow him to train with his teammates”, said Paul Breitner, while Thomas Müller confided that it would be more peaceful if “everyone in the locker room were vaccinated”. Furthermore, precisely due to the increase in infections, Kimmich has recently missed several matches: both in the national team and with Bayern he was in fact placed in preventive quarantine because he had been in contact with a positive. His comrades, vaccinated, have not been isolated. Not only that: now the Bavarian club has decided to cut the salary of the unvaccinated.
In fact, since last November 1st, the clubs are entitled not to pay the salary to their players who are in preventive quarantine or are positive for Covid and who have decided not to get vaccinated. In fact, they are considered unjustified absent from work, which is why, at the discretion of the club, they can suffer the suspension of their salary until they are reinstated as a group. For Kimmich, who has already skipped two weeks due to preventive quarantine (although never positive) this is a loss of 768 thousand euros (gross). In fact, the German international receives 384,000 euros a week. However, Bayern have also decided to suspend the salaries of the other four unvaccinated squads: Serge Gnabry, Jamal Musiala, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Michael Cuisance.
The five Bayern players were called into the meeting by president Herbert Hainer, managing director Oliver Kahn, sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic, and chief financial officer Jan-Christian Dreesen. The players expected a discussion on the opportunity to get vaccinated, instead they were informed that, if positive or quarantined, they will not receive the salary for the days of absence. Decision taken, without the possibility of reply. And the pressure on the unvaccinated is mounting.
