Inter have registered their opposition to releasing players for international duty during the upcoming break, with the club worried about the health risks of COVID-19.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that the Nerazzurri are opposed to allowing players to link up with their national sides and want Serie A to back up their stance.
This weekend’s matchday is poised to be the last at club level before a short international break in which national teams will compete in World Cup qualifiers among other activities.
However, with the pandemic still raging on, some at club level are worried that allowing players to travel with their national teams could expose them to health risks associated with COVID-19.
For this reason, the Nerazzurri are hoping that all of Serie A will unanimously oppose releasing players for the international break, with Argentine Lautaro Martinez, Chileans Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal, and Turk Hakan Calhanoglu all players who would be travelling to countries considered high-risk should they link up with their national teams.
