ESTAC Troyes striker Suk Hyun-Jun has COVID-19

L’Est Éclair report that Korean international and Ligue 2 side ESTAC Troyes’ forward Suk Hyun-Jun has contracted COVID-19, testing positive for the virus today.

This was the reason why he had been initially left out of tonight’s squad to face Le Mans in Ligue 2, in a match that of course will not be occurring this evening following the decision earlier today to suspend all professional French league football matches until further notice. Another individual, this time a player in the ESTAC Troyes youth academy, has also tested positive for COVID-19 at the club, who had previously been vying for a return to Ligue 1, currently sitting in 4th in the French second division table.

Suk had not felt well for several days, which was why he underwent the tests in the first place, which have come back positive tonight.
