In a Bundesliga second league game that ended last weekend, Dusseldorf played 1-0 at home in Würzburg. Polish striker Kovnadsky, who came on the bench and scored the winning goal, ended his 16-month scoring drought.
After the game, Kovnatsky said: “Even if I don’t look like myself anymore, I’m very happy. I still cry, I’m so nervous. It’s a very difficult time for me. I have been recovering for almost the whole year, and when I finally felt better and the situation really improved, I was hit by the new coronavirus. I had to start again."
Kovnadski is 23 years old and has been selected to the Polish national team many times in recent years and also played in the 2018 World Cup. As the historical champion of Dusseldorf, he delivered 20 games with 0 goals and 0 assists in the Bundesliga last season. He also suffered from ligament surgery and new coronary pneumonia.
Dusseldorf was relegated from the Bundesliga last season. At the beginning of this season, Kovnatsky was caught in rumors of leaving the team. In the first round of the Bundesliga, he did not enter the roster, but with the U23 to play in the regional league. In the second round of the second round of the Bundesliga, Dusseldorf played at home against the Würzburg kicker. He came off the bench in the 73rd minute and finally broke the deadlock nine minutes later.
