Usual titular goalkeeper of the Togo national team, Malcolm Barcola, the third goalkeeper of Olympique Lyonnais, will not be able to join his selection at the next break. As explained The team, OL relied on a circular from FIFA, which had set a regulation based on a period of 5 days of confinement on return. However, compulsory isolation for a person returning from a country outside the European Union is 7 days in France … “If he leaves, he could not play the match following his return. We will see. is not only for Malcolm, but for all selected (out of Europe)“, said Rudi Garcia at a press conference.
The coach of Togo did not appreciate
Claude Le Roy, the Togolese coach, expressed his dissatisfaction after learning of the decision of the Rhone club. “For Barcola, it’s a breath, it will do him good and we block him! Lyon refuses for an incredible settlement. OL should be happy that he goes with his country. It would have given him a little time of gambling, that would have helped. But we prefer to prevent it! You should know that here, the number of deaths from the Covid is roughly 1 in 100,000 against more than 1 in 1,000 in France, that is to say a hundred times less. So if the country is outside the EU, that when we come back it takes more than 5 days of confinement, there is the possibility of refusing to send the players there? It will kill the playoffs everywhere. Can the FIFA executive committee accept that? ”the 73-year-old coach was angry with OL will play in Lens for the first post-truce match.
