A number of Aston Villa fans have been reacting to news shared by the Premier League in regards to the upcoming international break.
Villa announced on Monday that both Emiliano Buendia and Emiliano Martinez have been called up by Argentina for next month’s World Cup qualifiers.
Where will Villa finish this season?
Several Villa supporters weren’t impressed, as Argentina is currently on the UK Government’s red-list regarding travel to England, meaning a 10-day period of hotel isolation would be required for the pair before players can return to Villa.
However, Premier League clubs have now decided that they will not release players to represent their countries in red-list countries.
So, as it stands, it appears as if Buendia and Martinez will not be travelling next month and look set to remain in the Midlands.
Villa fans react
@AVFCFaithful_ shared the Premier League’s statement on Twitter on Tuesday evening.
This is what these Villa fans had to say in reply, with more than one labelling it as ‘good news for Villa’.
“Good news for Villa”
“It’s a shame for them. But the league has to take priority for me”
“Right decision. Can’t afford to pay players millions and not see them for a month.”
“Brilliant so what does that mean to our players now then”
