Mateusz Klich will again be tested for COVID-19 with doubts surrounding whether the Leeds United player will be able to represent Poland in this international break.
On Wednesday, Poland confirmed Klich, 30, had tested positive while on international duty with Poland but was not suffering with any symptoms.
However, later in the day, Polish outlet TVP Sport reported a new test had come back negative.
Now, Meczyki journalist Tomasz Włodarczyk reports Klich will be tested again on Thursday and “if it is negative, the decision on what to do next will probably depend on” Poland’s health centre.
Klich will definitely miss Poland versus Hungary on Thursday but might be able to play against Andorra and England over the course of the next week.
It must be tough for Klich.
He’s not been in the best of form for Leeds, has been carrying a knock and has been left out of Marcelo Bielsa’s last couple of matchday squads in the Premier League.
We though this international break would do him the world of good to get a couple of games with Poland, rediscover his form in matches like the Andorra one on Sunday and then play against England next week.
It should have been a big international period for the Leeds midfielder but instead, it’s added yet more uncertainty for him.
Thankfully, whether Klich has COVID or not, he’s not suffering with any symptoms and we’re delighted to hear that. But it must be frustrating for him to be sat in self-isolation, doing test after test and getting different results.
Hopefully there’s a resolution to this soon and Klich is able to join back up with the Poland squads in time to play Andorra this weekend.
That would be a good game for him to get back form in.
