PFA chief Maheta Molango

PFA chief Maheta Molango revealed that players would like the quarantine period for red-list countries to be cut in half. Last week the government announced that elite players would be exempt from the quarantine period if they were fully vaccinated. The government announced that players would not have to stay in an approved hotel on their return to the UK. The exemption states that a player would have to use a club-owned facility and will be able to leave to play or train once a day.

“The players are not machines at the disposal of the club to perform – those people have a family.” PFA chief Maheta Molango said. “What is happening is that they will go away, approximately 14 days for the national team, followed by a 10-day quarantine so it’s 25 days without seeing your family. It is not just a question of money. It is a question of, ‘I have two kids and I want to see my kids, and I’m going to be away for 24 days, which can then be repeated in November and repeated in January’ [when there is a further international window for all confederations except UEFA].”

“There needs to be an understanding that players are human beings, who made a lot of sacrifices to continue playing during Covid [in Project Restart], without being vaccinated,” he added. “So while all of us were at home, they were working without a vaccine and exposing themselves to keep the enjoyment of fans going. We should remember that.”
