Leeds United midfielder Mateusz Klich has tested positive for Coronavirus again and has been definitively ruled out of the games against Andorra and England.
It’s the latest twist in a saga that has seen the Polish international receive both positive and then negative test results this week.
In Polish outlet Meczyki, it’s been reported that press spokesman Jakub Kwiatkowski confirmed the latest positive result was delivered on Thursday.
The report says, “Klich will definitely not be available for the matches with Andorra and England. He must be quarantined.”
The news was reported by Polish journalist Tomasz Włodarczyk.
Positive, negative, positive.
It’s tough to keep up with what’s going on with Klich this week but it must be frustrating for him.
It’s obvious that at least one of the tests that he’s had has delivered the wrong result and odds would say that it’s the negative one.
He’s been quarantined since the first positive so we think that he should be okay for the game against Sheffield United next weekend.
However, that will all depend on how he’s feeling – and this is a player who was already complaining about being fatigued.
After his first positive test, it was reported that he was asymptomatic and if that’s still the case then he could be in contention to play against the Blades.
Given his recent form, however, it might be better for him to get a proper rest, to recharge his batteries and come back as the Klich we knew from last season.
