Quarantining Premier League players will not be able to celebrate goals with their teammates, swap shirts or jump into the crowd as part of a number of strict rules after the international break.
A host of the division’s top players have concluded international action from their respective national sides in South America, after the guidelines for their return to the UK from red list nations were relaxed.
The Daily Mail report that alongside not being able to swap shirts or celebrate, the players will also have to travel alone or with private drivers separate from their teammates, have meals separately from the group and will not be able to take part in media duties.
The players will also have to undergo strength and conditioning training away from the team, as well as taking lateral flow and PCR tests on days zero, four and eight.
These rules come as Tottenham’s South American quartet of Giovani Lo Celso, Cristian Romero, Emerson Royal and Davinson Sanchez all remain as game-time decisions for Sunday’s clash against Newcastle United.
The Evening Standard reported that Lo Celso and Romero no longer need to quarantine after the UK removed Argentina from its red list of countries, while Sanchez and Emerson have had to undergo a bespoke 10 days in quarantine at the club’s training centre.

It seems as if the pandemic is still causing havoc and problems for clubs and players alike, and there are plenty of restrictions being implemented. Hopefully, things will change or at least improve slightly when the next international break comes around.
