Man Utd’s holiday approval for Matic, Ighalo may affect their Europa game
Many followers of Manchester United have observed that by allowing their stars to go on holiday outside the UK this week, their Europa League campaign may be at risk.
Among some of the players that flew out after the Premier League season concluded last weekend include, Nemanja Matic, Odion Ighalo, and Victor Lindelof
Already, the UK have re-imposed 14-day quarantine restrictions on all travellers from Spain and Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister has made it clear that the travel corridor could be closed on other European countries at short notice, amid fears over a second wave of Coronavirus.
It could be recalled that at the moment Manchester United are 5-0 up from their first leg against LASK Linz and with the score line they are sure to progress in next week’s Europa League last-16 second leg at Old Trafford.
Butt the problem envisaged by many is that the quarter-final is coming up on August 10, for that reason any players forced to self-isolate for 14 days would be unavailable for that game as well.
Although it is not clear how many more of the players have travelled abroad, but United’s squad are expected to report back at the end of the week.
In a statement, the club insists that no players have travelled to countries on the UK’s red list, but they will continue to monitor the situation and contact the players if it changes.
