The Crystal Palace Goalkeeper has tested positive for COVID-19.
The 27-year-old England International had contracted Coronavirus, and he is now reported to be self-isolating in a Hotel in London.
By confirming in a press conference, Roy Hodgson said on 23rd October, Friday: “It is very unfortunate that Wayne Hennessey picked up such a serious injury in the last international break, which was extremely unkind for us.”
“We were forced to act because we know that he is going to be out until at least January and even then we don’t know what the future holds for him and when he will be able to get fit again.”
He continued: “So we needed to bring someone in and our misfortune continued as no sooner did Jack come and sign than he tested positive for coronavirus.”
“So we haven’t seen him because he needed to self-isolate and like Jordan he is stuck in a hotel room in London in a very boring existence I imagine, waiting for the magical period of time that you have to self-isolate for to pass and take another test and hopefully be cleared.”
“We have only had him from afar. My only contact with him is on the phone to ask how he is feeling. He is feeling good, but very frustrated and disappointed that all he sees is four walls,” he concluded.
