Nagelsmann missed Bayern's 4-0 win over Benfica in the Champions League on Wednesday after showing signs of what the club said at the time was a ``flu-like infection,`` but sent instructions to his assistants remotely.
``Julian Nagelsmann has tested positive for Coronavirus despite being fully vaccinated. He will fly back to Munich separately from the team in a medical plane and isolate back there,'' Bayern said in a statement on social media on Thursday.
Bayern's next game on Saturday is at home to Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga.
