Thomas Müller is hoping for a quick return to Borussia Dortmund after his corona infection before FC Bayern Munich’s Bundesliga cracker next Saturday (6.30 p.m. in the FAZ live ticker for the Bundesliga and on Sky).

"The triple, the Covid triple, has come to me.

I have to say that this time I didn't have it on my radar," said the 33-year-old national soccer player about his third positive test for the corona virus in a video on Instagram.

"I'm doing very well so far.

Of course I hope that it stays that way, I'm confident that I can return to the pitch quickly."

After a test that was also positive for the corona virus on Saturday, the Munich team also had to do without Joshua Kimmich for the time being.

Both are symptom-free and doing well, the German record champions said.

Kimmich and Müller are in domestic isolation.

He spent an "interesting Bundesliga afternoon in front of the television," reported Müller.

He had first tested positive for corona in February 2021 and returned from the Club World Cup in Qatar on a separate plane.

A year later, Müller became infected again.

Müller and Kimmich had played 4-0 against Bayer Leverkusen on Friday evening.

For Bayern, before the Dortmund game in the Bundesliga, the Champions League match against Viktoria Pilsen on Tuesday (6.45 p.m. in the FAZ live ticker for the Champions League and on DAZN) is on the agenda.

Bayern's captain Manuel Neuer and Leon Goretzka had to pass due to positive tests for the World Cup dress rehearsal of the German national team, they were back on the pitch against Leverkusen.
