Man United Striker Questions the Club's Decision to Prevent him from Playing for his Country

Earlier today, the Premier League announced that all the EPL clubs had unanimously agreed to prevent some players from representing the nations that have been declared as COVID-19 red zone. This is because the players will be required to quarantine for 10 days which will affect most clubs who heavily depend on these players.

As a result, some players especially those hailing from South America where the virus has continued to cause havoc, will likely miss the upcoming September International break.

However, it seems like this decision has sank in well with some players. One of those to have openly questioned the Premier League's decision is Manchester United striker Edison Cavani. He took to his official Instagram account to put question marks on the Premier League's post.

The Uruguayan will not take part in his country's World Cup qualifier after Uruguay is declared as red zone. This means United will not allow him to head off for the international break since he will have to be quarantine and affect United's chance of challenging for trophies.

Some players will not like it that they are being forced to miss representing their clubs. This decision might not go down well with others. Do you think it's fair to prevent a player from playing for his country?
