Liverpool duo Sadio Mane and Kostas Tsimikas could miss the Champions league
clash with Atletico at Anfield
The Reds are facing a difficult return to action later this month with four of their
players traveling to red-listed countries for international fixtures.
Alisson and Fabinho will travel to three, with Brazil visiting Venezuela and Colombia
before hosting Uruguay, while Mane’s Senegal will play the second of their World Cup
qualifiers against Namibia in South Africa.
Greece take on red-listed Georgia in the first of their games this month, before
another away clash with Sweden.
The UK government have allowed exemptions for footballers returning from
countries on the red list, but players are still required to quarantine for 10 days, only
leaving once per day to train or play.
This does not solve the issue for Alisson and Fabinho, who return from Brazil too late
to play against Watford on October 16
And while Mane and Tsimikas should be permitted to leave quarantine for the visit to
Vicarage Road, they, like their Brazilian team-mates, are major doubts for the trip to
Atletico Madrid on October 19.
