Unvaccinated Bayern Munich players to take salary cuts during quarantine

Unvaccinated Bayern Munich players to take salary cuts during quarantine

Bayern Munich announced over the weekend that they are forsaking the salaries of its unvaccinated players while they are quarantined.

This simply means that, for days when they are unable to train or play with the team owing to coronavirus-related quarantine procedures, they will not be paid at all.

Speaking on Sky90 on Sunday, former Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said he understood the club's decision to cut salaries for the unvaccinated players saying, “if what the Bild-Zeitung reports is correct, it is certainly also to be understood as a sign that the club is now reacting.” 

Who are the unvaccinated players?

  • Joshua Kimmich
  • Serge Gnabry
  • Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting
  • Jamal Musiala
  • Mickael Cuisance

The afflicted players were informed of Bayern's decision over the weekend, and it was claimed that they were dissatisfied with the club's lack of assistance in the subject. They undoubtedly expected greater privacy from the situation and did not expect it to become public.

Despite all these reports, Bayern's bosses insist that the players still have the right to choose not to get the vaccines.

FOUR more Bayern Munich players in quarantine

How much will Kimmich lose?

For Kimmich, with an estimated annual salary of 20 million euros (including bonuses), this means a loss of 384,000 euros per week. With two weeks of quarantine, that makes it 768,000 euros.
