Manchester United forward Edinson Cavani has been left frustrated as the Premier League announced earlier this week that players will not be able to travel to red-list countries due to the quarantine period that would have to follow.
Cavani expressed his dismay at the announcement by sharing it on his Instagram story with three question marks over the post after all 20 Premier League club's voted in favour of the league's decision.
Premier League CEO Richard Masters says he understands the dismay of the league's South American players, with up to 60 players expected to be forced to miss the opportunity to represent their countries. Argentina, Brazil and Egypt are amongst the countries also effected.
“Premier League clubs have always supported their players’ desires to represent their countries – this is a matter of pride for all concerned. However, clubs have reluctantly but rightly come to the conclusion that it would be entirely unreasonable to release players under these new circumstances."
"Quarantine requirements mean that players’ welfare and fitness will be significantly impacted. We understand the challenges that exist in the international match calendar and remain open to workable solutions."
The 34-year-old striker will now miss Uruguay's World Cup key qualifying matches against Bolivia and Ecuador. As he is not getting younger, Cavani will see this as a missed opportunity to notch a few more caps for his country that will add to his legacy, where he has scored 53 times in 123 games for his country.
