The Premier League has made a rash decision ahead of the international break. Per AP News, the top flight will not allow a total of 60 players to join their countries for World Cup Qualifiers if they’re on England’s red list.
Liverpool started the trend on Monday when they announced that Mohamed Salah won’t be released to play with Egypt next week in qualifiers. The reason for this is because after they would return to the UK, the players would face a 10-day quarantine which would then affect their availability for Premier League clubs.
