Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann is convinced that the issue of vaccination against Covid-19 can not disrupt the harmony of his team, but he wants to avoid internal decisions leaking to the media.

for Friday's shock defeat toAugsburg
in the Bundesliga, as he was forced to quarantine after close contact with a positive case of the Coronavirus.
Following this incident, there were reports in the media that the club had announced to players who had not been vaccinated that they would not receive a salary during quarantine.
Nagelsmann spoke before Tuesday's Champions League match against Dynamo Kyiv:
"It's always a group's distinction that you don't always agree.
"In a functioning team, however, everyone has to be there for everyone. I don't think it will break the team, we have to grow from it.
"By not vaccinating, they are more likely to fail. But we have to be there for each other, we should grow from that.
"You often have conversations, if the person is positive, you have to be in quarantine as an unvaccinated person.
"The players are doing fine though, they are being tested. Josh could return earlier than the others because he was quarantined earlier."
However, Nagelsmann stressed that such issues should always be internal issues and not spread in the press.
Of course I'm not happy that certain internals are leaked, that's not beneficial. It's also about private things
," he added.
"There are too many things that are carried outwards. But that doesn't endanger our sporting success. It would be nicer if it was a little more closed.
"I have more fun when everything goes in the right direction. But we mustn't make the topic too big, every club has these problems. We mustn't project these issues too much onto the sporting side.
"We have moved forward in all statistical values. A week ago we were celebrated. Noise has been a part of FC Bayern for years."
