Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinted that he might prevent Bruno Fernandes from representing Portugal in World Cup qualifiers later this month. He recently revealed that due to UK government coronavirus restrictions, should he report for international duty, Fernandes would be forced to quarantine for 10 days upon returning.
According to him, he is not willing to lose his playmaker for 2 matches, as that will not make any sense at all for the club.
He added that MUFC are the ones paying the players, and from what he understands, FIFA has given the rules that they don’t have to be released.
His words, “We’ve not sat down and made a proper call on that one but it doesn’t make sense if you lose your player for 10 days of isolation, of course it doesn’t.”
“We’re the ones paying the players and from what I understand FIFA have given the rules that they don’t have to be released.”
“So I would think that’s going to be a hard call to make to let them go and play in red list countries, yeah.”
“I want Bruno of course, ready against Brighton and hopefully that we are through in Europe and against Tottenham after that break, of course I do.”
