A heart problem probably linked to Covid
A heart problem which should fortunately not affect the rest of his career.

Another proven origin of this inflammation of the myocardium is, in very rare cases, the injection of a dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.
Julian Nagelsmann’s explanations on the subject also lend themselves to optimism:
“He is deprived of training until further notice. He will not be available in the next few weeks. This myocarditis is not so dramatic on ultrasound, but there are signs of myocarditis.Nevertheless, she needs to heal and it will definitely take some time “.
