The United Kingdom has enjoyed practically absolute normality of internal borders in terms of coronavirus restrictions for more than a month, but not abroad. The government continues to maintain a safe destination traffic light that imposes heavy penalties on those who return from countries marked in red, and that is why the Premier League clubs have unanimously decided this afternoon not to allow players who have to travel to these destinations to leave in the next FIFA break.

If they did, players such as Mohammed Salah, from Liverpool, would have to do a ten-day quarantine on their return at a hotel chosen by the government. In the case of the reds, in addition, they would lose their star during two games. “The Premier League clubs have decided reluctantly, but unanimously, not to release players for international matches played in countries on the red list. This decision, which has the firm backing of the competition, will affect 60 players from 19 Premier League clubs who should have traveled to 26 countries on the red list during the September break, ”explained a statement issued in the afternoon.

The announcement has also reached FIFA, with a puja included, since the highest football body is blamed for having forced them to take this unilateral route. "We do it because of the current position of FIFA not to continue allowing to evade the call of the selection when the player has to quarantine when he is called back," he points out.
