Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has uncovered that Mateo Kovacic has been tested positive for coronavirus.

Having been missing since October 26 through injury, the midfielder made his re-visitation of the training pitch on Monday, placing him in contention for Saturday’s Premier League game with Leeds United.

Nonetheless, the 27-year-old has now tested positive for covid 19, and Tuchel couldn’t conceal his dissatisfaction as he addressed the media on Tuesday.

The German told reporters: “We have bad news because Mateo was in training yesterday with a big smile and it was pure pleasure to have him back, but now he has tested positive for coronavirus.

“He is isolating and out for another several days. It’s a huge setback for him personally and for all of us.”

Given that the Croatia international will also need to come through training sessions with the team upon his return, he may not come back into contention until the trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers on December 19.
