Liverpool’s board of directors considers that FIFA has no “legal basis” to ban, for five days, the performance of Brazilian players whose performances, due to the pandemic, Tite were unable to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.

Gabriel Jesus. Of this list, three belong to the Reds: Alisson, Fabinho and Firmino.

a sky The sport has highlighted Article 22 of the maximum football entity’s disciplinary law, which provides for fines and a 3-0 defeat for a team that does not comply with the restrictions applied by the entity.
This weekend, Jurgen Klopp’s side take on Leeds United in the English Championship, which also features one of the ‘banned’ Brazilians: Ravenha. There are, at present, no definitions of non-compliance with the rule.
