Leeds star Rodrigo enters self-isolation after confirming positive Covid-19 test


Rodrigo Leeds United 2020-21

Leeds United striker Rodrigo has confirmed he has tested positive for Covid-19 and will now enter a period of self-isolation.

"Rodrigo will miss tonight’s game having been in close contact with a person who has subsequently tested positive for the coronavirus," a club statement read.

"In line with Premier League and Government guidelines he now has to isolate away from the team."

In a post on Instagram, the 29-year-old has now confirmed that he has also tested positive.

"Unfortunately I have tested positive for COVID-19 after being in contact with a family member that had been infected without us knowing. As per the protocol I will be self isolating and will miss the game with Crystal Palace," Rodrigo said.

"Both my family and I feel great, we are lucky enough to feel healthy and we are keeping a positive attitude. From home I will support Leeds and the Spanish National team as a supporter and I will be back on the pitch soon.

"Thank you for all those who have shown concern."

Rodrigo has been finding his feet at Elland Road after making a€30 million (£27m/$35m) move from Valencia in the off-season, a club-record transfer outlay for Leeds.

The Spain international has scored one goal in seven appearances in all competitions, with Leeds currently sitting 12th in the Premier League table.

Rodrigo will miss out on Leeds' match against Crystal Palace on Saturday ahead of the international break. He is also likely to miss out on Spain's squad for their three upcoming matches in the international break.

The forward featured for his country in the Nations League against Ukraine earlier this month but is set to play no part as La Roja prepare for a friendly against the Netherlands and Nations League matches against Switzerland and Germany
