FC Bayern Munich: Comeback from the starting lineup: Can Joshua Kimmich be the boss again? – Bundesliga
After a two-month Corona break, Joshua Kimmich (26) will return to the field on Friday at the start of the second half against Gladbach!
The big question: how fit is the national player?
Kimmich made his last game in a 2-1 win against Freiburg on November 6th. After that, he was out for 45 days because of quarantine as an unvaccinated person, a corona infection, the consequences of the disease (fluid in the lungs) and the subsequent training. On Monday, the national player trained with his colleagues for the first time. After four team units now comes the endurance test against Gladbach.

By the way, Sven Ulreich (33) will be in the can for Manuel Neuer (35 / Corona). The last time he was in goal for Bayern in the Bundesliga in a 3-1 win against Freiburg was on June 20, 2020. That was his farewell game before the Swabian went to HSV for a year.
In the current season, Ulreich has only played in the cup (12-0 at Bremer SV). After that, a serious knee injury and back problems stopped him, so he was only in the squad 13 times.
Nagelsmann nevertheless has great confidence in his new number 1: “Ulle has trained extremely well, really great. He saved a lot of good balls and threw himself one-on-one. He is experienced, I am good things. “
