Solskjaer confirms plan to block some players from going on international duty

Manchester United boss Olé Gunnar Solskjaer has suggested that some Manchester United players will not be allowed to travel to countries with high cases of Covid-19 during the international break later this month.

There’s currently a rule that requires people coming into the UK from red-list travel ban countries to quarantine for 10 days before they’re allowed to move around.

And with the international break requiring some of our players to travel to different parts of the world, Solskjaer says he will not allow anyone go if it means protecting the club from missing their services later in April.

Speaking on the matter recently, the gaffer said, “We’ve not sat down and made a proper call on that one, but it doesn’t make sense if you lose your player for 10 days’ isolation.

“We are the ones paying the players and from what I understand that is the rule, FIFA have given the rule they don’t have to be released so I would think that would be a hard call to make – to let them go and play in red-list countries.

“I want Bruno, of course, ready against Brighton and hopefully we are through in Europe and against Tottenham after that break. Of course I do.”

Other clubs like Liverpool have already effected the policy, which is very understandable, seeing how much they have to pay for their services.
