Premier League statement gives Manchester United and Man City a boost on international players

Premier League players will not be released to represent their countries next month if their country is on the government’s red list.

Manchester United And Manchester They were facing the prospect of losing key players from their teams after the international break due to quarantine rules, but Premier League clubs have now moved ‘unanimously’ to prevent that outcome.

The clubs’ decision, which was said to be “strongly supported” by Premier League As an organisation, it will mean nearly 60 players from 19 top-flight teams who were previously due to travel to the 26 countries red-listed in the September international window will now remain in England.

United and City have players on both teams representing Brazil and Uruguay and both are on the red list.

“Premier League clubs have always supported the desires of their players to represent their countries – and this is a source of pride for all involved,” said the Premier League chief executive. Richard Masters said about the decision.

“However, the clubs have reluctantly but rightly come to the conclusion that it would be completely unreasonable to release players under these new conditions. Quarantine requirements mean that players’ well-being and physical fitness will be significantly affected.

“We understand the challenges in the international match calendar and remain open to practical solutions.”
