BERLIN: Kingsley Coman is self-isolating at home after coming into contact with someone infected with coronavirus, Bayern Munich announced on Tuesday.

In a statement, Bayern said that France attacker Coman, who scored the only goal in last season’s Champions League final victory over his boyhood club Paris St Germain, tested negative for Covid-19 on Sunday.

The six-time European champions did not say for how long for the 24-year-old would be in isolation, nor when he would undergo a new test for the virus.

Bayern also did not say whether he would miss the opening fixture of their Bundesliga title defence, against Schalke on Friday evening.
