FIFA suspension for Liverpool’s Brazilians: club sees no basis

“Sky Sports” report

According to a report, Liverpool FC hopes, despite a FIFA ban for its Brazilian players, to be able to use the professionals concerned on the upcoming Premier League matchday. According to information from the British broadcaster “Sky Sports” on Thursday, the club sees no basis for the ban. Roberto Firmino (29), Fabinho (27) and goalkeeper Alisson (28) should not be allowed to play at Leeds United on Sunday because Liverpool had banned the trio from traveling to the internationals with Brazil. However, the club sees itself as right because of the corona pandemic.

The Brazilian association relies on a FIFA rule that allows players to be suspended for a five-day period if their clubs do not allow them to play international matches with their national team. The Premier League clubs had agreed not to send professionals to World Cup qualifiers in countries on the so-called red list of the British government because of the pandemic. The reason: Players would have to go into quarantine for ten days after their return.

Not only Liverpool FC is affected. Gabriel Jesus (24) and Ederson (28) from Manchester City as well as Raphinha (24) from Leeds United would have to watch on the coming matchday. Thiago Silva (36) from Chelsea and Fred (28) from Manchester United would also miss their teams at the Champions League opener next week. Players from Mexico, Chile and Paraguay are also banned.

It was still open on Thursday whether the clubs would act against it or ignore the ban. A team that violates the rule may face a penalty. It is unclear what happens if two affected clubs playing face-to-face with each other fail to comply, as could be the case with Liverpool and Leeds.
