'This guy's luck', 'What a shame': Some Leeds fans ‘gutted’ after Euro 2020 update regarding 27-year-old

Some Leeds United fans have been reacting after Spain international Diego Llorente tested positive for Coronavirus.

In a post on their Twitter page, the Spanish Football Federation confirmed the defender had left the squad in a medicalised vehicle to self-isolate.

The midfielder tested positive last Sunday just eight days before the nation’s first game against Sweden.

Llorente finished last season with a flourish, helping the Whites to six wins out of nine Premier League games. It cemented his place in the Euro 2020 squad for the upcoming tournament.
