GERMAN officials are considering making Covid vaccines mandatory for all players, according to reports.

That could prove a problem for Bayern Munich, who have a host of top stars yet to get the jab.

Estimates suggest around 10% of Bundesliga players haven’t had the vaccine.

Bayern’s Joshua Kimmich, Jamal Musiala, Serge Gnabry and Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting are reported to be among them.

And the Bavarian giants are said to be having to split their unvaccinated players from the rest of the group.

The move comes as Germany battles with rising infection rates.

Health officials are currently weighing up potential lockdown restrictions for the unvaccinated in the country.

Debate is raging over whether professional athletes should be subject to the same rules.

Bavaria has already moved to a ‘2G’ system for entry into places such as restaurants and hotels.

Under previous rules, anyone who was vaccinated, had recovered from Covid, or tested negative could go into these premises.

But now only the vaccinated and recovered are allowed in.

That makes life difficult for Bayern as they gear up for a blockbuster derby with Borussia Dortmund.

The German heavyweights face each other on December 4 and Bayern will clearly want to bring their squad together to prepare for top-of-the-table clash.
