This comes after Premier League refused to release its’ players for the upcoming FIFA World Cup qualifiers. The goalkeeper’s fellow teammate and countrymen, Emi Buendia is expected to join him and leave England for the upcoming international matches.
According to The Mail, the Argentinian FA is confident that the Aston Villa duo of Martinez Buendia will not be the only player leaving England for international matches. Spurs stars Cristian Romero and Giovani Lo Celso are also said to meet up arrive for Argentina’s World Cup qualifiers.
The players are set to rebel against the Premier League after it announced that players will have to undergo quarantine for playing in red-list countries unless exemptions are granted for them.
The Rule heavily applies to South American players who have been vocal about their unhappiness of missing the chance to play for the country. The players are forced to remain in England and miss out on national duty while countries fight each other in the upcoming FIFA World Cup Qualifiers.
Argentina is currently on the red list of the UK government which would force players to quarantine for 10 days in a Government hotel upon their return to England. Clubs will not be able to call upon their stars who could miss out on two rounds of Premier League fixtures and all their teams’ Carabao Cup tie.
