Manchester United have put the club’s Europa League campaign at risk by allowing their stars to go on holiday abroad this week, reports dailymail.co.uk.
Nemanja Matic, Victor Lindelof and Odion Ighalo are among the players who jetted off following the end of the Premier League season last weekend ahead of United’s return to European action.
The UK re-imposed 14-day quarantine restrictions on all travellers from Spain last week – catching thousands of British tourists by surprise – and Prime Minister Boris Johnson has warned that the travel corridor could be closed on other European countries at short notice amid fears over a second wave of the coronavirus.
Although United are 5-0 up against LASK Linz and certain to progress in next week’s Europa League round of 16 second leg at Old Trafford, the quarter-final is on August 10 which means that any players forced to self-isolate for 14 days would be unavailable for that game as well. (Guardian)
