With a new international break coming up, we’re about to see more controversies regarding players who’ll be called up to leave the United Kingdom.
Many clubs stopped their footballers from travelling last time, including Wolverhampton Wanderers, who didn’t let Raul Jimenez join the Mexican national team.
There had been good communication between club and country during the player’s recovery from his head injury, and that’s why this recent issue was a bit of a shock for the local Mexican media.
Now according to ESPN, the Mexican FA are already moving so they can have the striker available for the next international break.
It’s reported that Mexico sent Wolves a written request for Jimenez’s travel. Still, the Premier League club haven’t changed their stance and could still turn it down.
“Honestly, there’s no news. We will see if Mexico leaves the red list, but it seems unlikely,” a source told ESPN.
Reports from Latin America have been claiming that FIFA and the UK government will try to find a solution for quarantine, although there’s no official information on that yet. Mexico play Canada, Honduras and El Salvador on the 7th, 10th and 13th of October.
