With the Europa League about to start, we are once again faced with a few Covid-19 issues for travelling players.
As Leicester City prepare to face Napoli in the competition, there was a worry that three of the Italian side’s players might not be able to make the trip because of where they went to during the international break.
Those were David Ospina, Victor Osimhen and Amir Rahmani, but Gazzetta dello Sport are reporting on Wednesday that UEFA have ‘reassured’ the Serie A club that the trio ‘will board the charter flight’ that will take the team to Leicester this afternoon.
It’s explained the European footballing body ‘managed to convince the English authorities to review the provision that would have prohibited the three Napoli players from entering England’.
Furthermore, when Napoli arrive to face Leicester City, they ‘will be in the bubble’ and the ‘pre-match conference will also take place on Zoom’.
On top of that, ‘the players will undergo a new test tomorrow morning, on match day’.
Therefore, it appears the three players will line up against Brendan Rodgers’ side on Thursday, meaning the defence will have to prepare for the striker’s pace and beat the Colombia international to get the ball in the back of the net.
