After being sent off in a Champions League match and conceding three goals to Liverpool, Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo was supposed to have some quality time away with the national team.
The 36-year-old was the last Chilean player to arrive in his country, turning up in Santiago at 1am on Wednesday to join his teammates.
Website RedGol reports he only had a small discussion with the local media, since he, understandably, didn’t want to speak due to the presence of his daughter, and complained about the cameras which followed him at the airport.
And it turns out that after joining the Chile squad, it’s been decided that the friendly match against Peru will no longer be played.
According to RPP, Bravo is part of a group with Arturo Vidal, Gary Medel and Charles Aranguiz which decided not to travel to Lima due to Chile’s current political and social situation.
Players claimed they want to ‘respect’ the Chilean people due to all the chaos the country has been in, and shortly after the Chile federation announced that the friendly match was cancelled, with all players being available for their clubs once again.
So Bravo should now spend about 20 hours going back to Manchester without having played a single minute for the national team.
