Kuching FA go back to the swab test after player falls ill

PETALING JAYA: Premier League outfit Kuching FA’s players and coaching staff will undergo a second Covid-19 screening test next week before being allowed to continue their training session.

The team are under home quarantine after one of their players, who is also an employee at Sentosa Hospital, tested positive and was identified as part of the Sentosa Covid-19 cluster on Thursday.

The positive case forced the team to suspend all training activities until they get the green light again from the Malaysian Football League to resume training.

Kuching FA president Fazzrudin Abdul Rahman said his players had undergone a swab test two days ago and will have another test before they can be cleared to return to training.

“After the second screening, we will report to the MFL and apply again to continue the training session,” he said.

“At the moment, we can only wait for the clearance and we hope the players’ results come back negative. It’s a testing moment for us and I pray for every one’s wellbeing.”

Kuching are currently 11th in the 12-team Premier League standings with only a point following a draw and three defeats after four matches.

The suspension of their training also puts in jeopardy their preparations for the resumption of the Premier League on Aug 26.
