Union’s Przybylko confirms he was club’s positive COVID-19 player

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Union announced back in early April that a player tested positive for the COVID-19 disease.

Striker Kacper Przybylko confirmed Wednesday that it was him who had the virus but has since recovered.

Przybylko announced the news, ending a lengthy period of uncertainty in regards to which Union player had contracted the virus. The German striker underwent self-isolation and quarantine for 14 days; luckily, he has since returned to good health.

“I would like to thank everybody for respecting my privacy at this time. I just needed some time for myself before I wanted to share with everybody.”

He’s played in both games in 2020 but failed to score in either game. Przybylko and the Union posted a 0-1-1 record in before the Major League Soccer season was postponed.

The club still cannot return to the training facilities in Chester due to the city’s ongoing stay-at-home regulations. It is undetermined when the MLS regular season will resume, although reports have listed July as the likely period.
