UK Government Amends Law- Osimhen Free To Play For Napoli Against Leicester City Despite Visit To Cape Verde
Napoli have been told that Nigeria international forward Victor Osimhen is free to play for them when they take on Leicester City in the Europa League on Thursday.
The Nigerian was initially feared to be out of the game after representing Nigeria during the last international break where he played and scored against Cape Verde, one of the countries in the UK red list in the fight against the spread of coronavirus.
Visitors from countries in the UK red list are required by the British laws to quarantine for a minimum of ten days before they can be allowed to take part in public activities.
The laws would have seen Osimhen, Kalidou Koulibaly and David Ospina miss the Europa League game but it has been amended now allowing all three players who visited red listed countries free to play.
Per the new laws, players from UEFA club competitions are exempt from quarantine even after visiting a red listed country. No statement was made on if it covers African and South American countries on the red list with another round of international games looming.
