PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) The Philadelphia Union’s Kacper Przybylko tested positive for COVID-19 at the start of the pandemic and is now recovered after a quarantine which included feeling the effects of the virus for several days. 

“It was like a regular flu that I have every year. After four days I was just lying in bed.  Right now, everything’s fine and I’m fully recovered,” he said. 

Przybylko’s fiance suffers from asthma, and the Union forward is grateful his fiancée remains symptom free.

“I was happy that my fiance had no symptoms at all. I had mild symptoms. She had no symptoms at all. I was just happy about that,” Przybylko said. 

Przybylko is back practicing with his teammates and admitted catching his breath was difficult in the first days of practice last week.​
