Crazybola.com – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s threat that Edinson Cavani and Fred could lose their place at Manchester United if they decide to strengthen their national team in the international break next month is starting to have an impact.
Edinson Cavani ultimately missed a call-up from the Uruguay national team for international duty this month, meaning he will remain with Manchester United and avoid the need to be quarantined for 10 days.
It was announced last week that all 20 Premier League clubs have agreed that they will not release players if they are to play matches in countries on the British government’s red list, including most of South America.
Those who decide to go on international duty next month will be forced to undergo a mandatory 10-day quarantine upon arrival in England, and as a result they will miss several games for their club.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has also warned his players Edinson Cavani and Fred that they will miss more than just a few games if they venture to South America, insisting that both positions in the Manchester United team will be threatened.
Now the Uruguayan national team has finally relented to demands by Manchester United and the Premier League not to release their players to international duty if it involves the countries on their list by announcing that their 34-year-old striker will not be called up.
“Based on the situation with the player from England, the Uruguayan Football Association has decided to cancel the summons of Edinson Cavani,” the Uruguayan football association said in a statement on Monday morning local time.
During this international break, Uruguay national team have three matches to play for their 2022 World Cup Qualifiers away to Peru (3/9) and two home games against Bolivia (6/9) and Ecuador (10/9).
If Edinson Cavani and Fred go to their respective countries in this international break, they will lose about three or four games namely vs Newcastle United (EPL, 11/9), vs Young Boys (Champions League, 14/9), vs. West Ham (EPL, 19/9), and vs. Wes Ham (League Cup, 21/9).
