Lionel Scaloni is angry that club footballers from several other European countries, including England, have not agreed to leave the World Cup qualifiers.
English Premier League teams have refused to release players from countries on the UK government's "red list" due to the coronavirus. Latin American countries are on this list. And it is compulsory to stay in quarantine for 10 days after returning to UK from these countries.
La Liga in tune with the Premier League. They said they would support the clubs if they did not release players on the coronavirus issue.
As a result of their decision, many footballers could not join the national team. Although many joined, he returned to the club without completing his duties.
Argentina will not be able to select a number of players against Bolivia in the World Cup qualifiers due to such restrictions. Scaloni expressed his displeasure at the press conference on Wednesday before the match.
"It simply came to our notice then. It seems like a lot of things we need to rethink. Because, we can't accept what has happened without the players of the clubs. There are a lot of national teams that didn't get some players, and even if they did get some, they had to be sent back earlier. ”
The Brazilian team has suffered the most without the Premier League players. They did not get a total of 9 players including four first choice players. Argentina got four footballers in the Premier League - Emiliano Buendia, Emiliano Martinez, Giovanni Lo Celso and Cristian Romero. With these four in the squad, Scaloni's team won 3-1 against Venezuela last Friday.
