Hwang Hee-chan of South Korea felt “almost dead” for a week when he was infected with coronovirus, Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann said on Friday. Hwang tested positive last month after returning to Germany from the South Korean national team’s friendly games in Austria against Mexico and Qatar.
Nagelsmann said that Hwang has since been able to manage only one severely deficient training program and will not be available to play for Leipzig until next month.
“It was the case that he had a full range of symptoms. I spoke with him briefly and he said, ‘For the first seven days, I was almost dead.’ It’s just like they put it, “Nagelsmann said. “It was not good for him and so you have to be careful. Everyone knows about the virus that when you get back (in training) very quickly, it can be dangerous to the organs, most of all to the heart. Hence it is advisable to take precautions. “
Hwang scored 16 goals for Leipzig and 22 more for Salzburg last season. Since moving to the German club, he has scored once in seven matches.
