Harrison confirms Covid-19 absence for Leeds vs Newcastle

Why Jack Harrison is absent at Leeds vs Newcastle

Leeds United star Jack Harrison took to social media tonight to give an explanation for his absence from the club’s side to face Newcastle United.

Magpies confrontation

Marcelo Bielsa’s men are ready to launch their campaign in less than half an hour.

The Whites have traveled to St. James’ Park for a Premier League clash, aiming to leave behind a less than ideal start to the 2021/22 season.

As it stands, Leeds is just one point away from the relegation zone, having collected two points out of twelve available so far.

The Yorkshire side’s most recent outing, at home to Liverpool last weekend, saw them go to the sword in utterly concerning fashion, by three goals to nil.

‘Feel good’

Before the action begins on Tyneside, meanwhile, as usual, the respective starting lineups for both sides were recently unveiled.

Marcelo Bielsa, forced to deal with the absences of all Pascal Struijk (suspended), Diego Llorente (injured) and Robin Koch (injured), opted for the following XI to face Steve Bruce’s Newcastle:

However, when the last line-up of the whites made their way online, it quickly became clear that another key member of Bielsa’s ranks was also not in sight.

The player in question? Jack Harrison.

Wide man Harrison boasts a stellar record against Newcastle as of late, and his surprise absence tonight was therefore a major blow.

However, as described above, the 24-year-old has provided insight into his current whereabouts.

Unfortunately for the club and the player, Harrison has tested positive for Covid-19 and has been forced into a period of self-isolation as a result:

“ I am very frustrated to miss the game due to COVID, but I will support the boys from home and will be back very soon. Thanks for all the good wishes, I feel good. good luck guys!
