Juventus talisman Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly traveled to Dubai for Christmas, sparking debate over the various rules for football players.
La Gazzetta Dello Sport informs that the Portuguese superstar has agreed, without quarantine, to spend his holidays in Dubai. And the article says that this Christmas, Ronaldo will not be the only Juventus player leaving Turin and Italy. The same idea had three or four other teammates, traveling to alert nations and fewer limitations.
The newspaper reveals that footballers do not have the same issues when returning to work in Italy, as the decree specifies that those returning from abroad must live in isolation between 21 December and 6 January.
Football players, however, will practice in isolation, with daily swab tests, and only have contact with the team community, conducting regular tests in the days following their return.
The controversy about the players’ holidays has already begun, at a time when many families in Italy are not going to be able to get together.
