Thomas Müller was subbed off in the 25th minute against Viktoria Plzen, but manager Julian Nagelsmann confirmed it was just a precaution due to muscle stiffness.

After spending time away from the team due to covid and a cold, Thomas Müller was replaced by Mathys Tel in just the 25th minute in his return to the pitch on Wednesday. After the game, Julian Nagelsmann played down any fears by stating to DAZN:

“The muscles in the back have closed a bit from the nerve, but I think it’s nothing bad. No risk for the weekend.”

Müller looked to be in an excellent mood following the match and Bayern fans shouldn’t have any concern for his status against Freiburg this weekend.
