The Moroccan international Noussair Mazraoui (25) will not join Bayern Munich on an internship in Doha. The Moroccan international has pericarditis, an inflammation of the pericardium, Bayern said. The German club now confirms what Bilal El Khounnouss said in an interview, that Mazraoui had a covid infection at the World Cup and played with it.

It is only a mild inflammation of the pericardium. In principle, this condition passes with a few weeks of rest.

Mazraoui was missing at the last World Cup in Qatar in the quarter-finals against Portugal and in the game for third place against Croatia, but was on the field for half in the semi-final against France. He was substituted at halftime.

“Noussair Mazraoui and Nayef Aguerd turned out to have played with a covid infection afterwards,” said El Khounnouss the day before yesterday. This has now been confirmed by Bayern Munich.

Pericarditis is one of the known side effects of a Covid infection. Last spring, Quick Step rider Tim Declercq was sidelined for a while after he had an inflammation of the pericardium after a Covid infection.
