The statement on Mainz's club website didn't offer many details on, but did note that the issues may be stemming from a possible infection and that further tests would be conducted. Leitsch joined the Pfälzer from VfL Bochum this summer as a high-profile and expensive acquisition. He started the initial seven 2022/23 Bundesliga games before these issues began.
Frenchman Anthony Caci has taken Leitsch's place in Svensson's back-three.
