Deported from Brazil, these two Argentine players are sanctioned by Tottenham Hotspur – Tottenham Hotspur will fine Cristian Romero and Giovani Lo Celso, for breaking the rules and flying to defend Argentina against Brazil.

Not only the two players, the Spurs will even impose fines on THREE South American stars who have violated the rules not to return to their country in this international break. Thus expressed The Sun.

In addition to Lo Celso and Cristian Romero who are both from Argentina, Spurs also have to see the mainstay defender from Colombia, Davinson Sanchez, also breaking the rules not to play in the World Cup qualifiers due to the Covid-19 quarantine problem.

Two of the Tottenham Hotspur players played in the match against Brazil on Sunday (5/9) – a match that was finally stopped in the 6th minute, as Argentine players playing in the Premier League were accused of violating Covid-19 quarantine rules and falsify documents to enter Brazil illegally.

Both Lo Celso and Romero started the match, which was stopped by the Brazilian health authorities who suddenly stormed onto the pitch during the game in Sao Paulo.

Lo Celso, Romero and Sanchez are likely to face hefty fines when they return to North London from their illegal trip. They are also in quarantine and will miss three games following their return to England.

The Premier League had previously banned clubs from sending their players for international matches played in red-listed countries due to Covid-19. This is because Fifa does not want to extend the exception to the temporary release of the players, where they will be required to undergo quarantine when returning from duty in the national team.

Tottenham Hotspur have argued they were powerless to prevent the three players from returning to their home country, and will ask the Premier League, FIFA and the British Foreign Office to implement tougher rules banning players from traveling to future international breaks.

Especially in the busy period from October to November, Nuno Espirito Santo’s team is worried that the quarantine rules will make them lose players from South America, at least in NINE MATCHES starting from now until next Christmas.
