Manchester United are already seeded for the crucial stage of the Champions League, and Manchester United have only one more game to play in the competition. On the 8th of December, the team will face the Young Boys of Switzerland as a home team, but will be able to play on neutral ground. According to information published by “Sky Sports”, the new restrictions imposed by the Omicron variant of Covid-19, may force the English language to act away from England.
The reason is that Switzerland has demanded the isolation of travelers from the United Kingdom. Thus, if the Young Boys go to England to face United, they will need at least ten days of isolation before they can move across Swiss soil again. Thus, players will end up losing important matches in the domestic tournament.
Because of this situation, the Manchester United board of directors is already looking at options to send the last round match of Group F. Despite this, there is still no official confirmation from UEFA regarding the possibility of the change. The European organization admitted in a statement that it was in talks with the Swiss Football Association in search of a solution to the situation.
“UEFA is in contact with the Swiss Football Federation as well as the relevant clubs regarding this matter. We will publish any additional information if it is confirmed by the relevant authorities.”As stated in the statement of the European Football Association.
Although Manchester United’s status is already defined within the group, Young Boys are still fighting to qualify for the Europa League. For that reason, the game still has a lot of weight and the game’s banishment from England could give the Swiss team an advantage. The trend is for UEFA to resolve the situation later this week.
