DFL boss Christian Seifert reveals that 86 professional footballers in the Bundesliga and 2. Bundesliga are unvaccinated: "I have absolutely no understanding for someone that doesn't get vaccinated. It applies to all citizens from my point of view, please get vaccinated!" [@SZ]
Hainer: "The FC Bayern board has not decided yet whether or not to extend the sponsorship with Qatar Airways. FC Bayern will fulfill the contract. We'll take the suggestions and ideas of our members seriously and analyze the situation with self criticism"
Hainer on rejecting the motion against Qatar: "We explained and justified this at the meeting. There was no legal basis, the motion was not admissible in this form. The court had decided and made it clear in advance. That affected the atmosphere this evening"
Herbert Hainer on last night's AGM: "You can imagine that we didn't have a calm night. Discourses are part of the club's life. Criticism is always possible but the tonality has to be right, and that wasn't always the case this evening" [@kessler_philipp, @mano_bonke, @tzmuenchen]
Personnel situation for tomorrow:
• Lucas & Goretzka fit to start
• Sabitzer, Nianzou & Sarr out with injuries
• Süle & Stanišić are available but won't start
• Gnabry, Musiala & Cuisance out of quarantine but won't start
• Kimmich & Choupo-Moting remain in isolation
Nagelsmann on Ralf Rangnick to Manchester United: "I texted him & told him I think it's great. He will do United very well with the way he plays football. I believe that United will play good games in the next few weeks and I wish he'll stay there longer than just next summer"
JN on who to replace Kimmich: "Sabitzer is injured. Marc Roca has now played a few minutes, that was good for him. I should have tested Jamal Musiala (in Kimmich's position) earlier, I'm annoyed about that. I trust him to do it. He had good defensive sequences v Augsburg"
Nagelsmann on Nianzou: "Tanguy has torn a ligament in his shoulder. He won't be available tomorrow. When he doesn't have pain anymore, he can go back to normal. It's something that can be treated well"
JN on the difference in performances between Bundesliga & CL: "The criticism after Augsburg was justified. But I don't see two faces of the team. We weren't great against Kiev either. I'm thinking a lot about how we can do things better."
