Philadelphia Union forward Kacper Przybylko posted a video on his Instagram on Wednesday identifying himself as the player who tested positive for COVID-19 back in March.
“I immediately alerted the proper team officials about my symptoms and went straight to self isolating,” he said in the video. “After I received my test I also went for quarantine for 14 days.”
Przybylko was not identified at the time when the team announced on April 1 that a player had tested positive.
“I would like to thank everybody for respecting my privacy at this time,” Przybylko said in the video. “I just needed some time for myself before I wanted to share with everybody, especially my teammates, my close friends, my family.”
Przybylko said his symptoms were mild and that he’s feeling great now.
“I feel great right now, I feel fully recovered,” he said. “I’m looking forward to the magical moment to be back at the practice and with all you guys.”
While some teams in MLS have returned to training grounds for individual training sessions at a safe distance, no announcement has been made about when players will be able to return to train at the Power Training Complex in Chester.
