The identities of players that have contracted the novel coronavirus in Major League Soccer & the Premier League have begun being revealed. It was first announced by Kacper Przybylko that he was the individual not identified last month as the 1st MLS Player with COVID-19. This information came to light after the Polish Striker was forced into making a video statement on the Philadelphia Union Website. He noted that the effects of COVID-19 had left his body, with the fourteen-day quarantine period for Kacper also ending. Przybylko remarked that his health has returned to normal & is looking forward to practising again.
April 1st marked the date that the Philadelphia Union confirmed through PR Reps that one of their players had contracted the novel coronavirus. When Kacper returns to training, it’s expected that mass testing of all those that engage with him will be maintained. Even though the science shows that Kacper is most likely immune from the virus now, it’s a precautionary measure meant to put peace of mind for all those involved with the Philadelphia Union.
Przybylko revealed in his video message that coaching staff with the Philadelphia Union were informed of his symptoms, where Kacper would immediately be notified to enter self-isolation. When the video ended to thousands of Union Supporters, Kacper remarked that his identity was kept secret by personal choice. The Striker didn’t want to experience a backlash against himself or his family.
Kacper Przybylko was born in Germany, playing in the Bundesliga League for nearly a decade. He’s competed with four different outfits, amassing himself a distinguished career record that prompted his advancement into Major League Soccer.
