      FIFA Ban - Brazilian Players

      Eight Premier League players will be stopped from playing for their clubs this weekend after Brazilian football authorities triggered a Fifa rule to prevent them appearing.

      Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Manchester United and Leeds United will all be affected.

      Players not released for an international window can be banned for five days after the window ends under the Fifa regulations.

      The decision covers 10-14 September.

      Brazil invoked the bans after the Premier League stopped players from appearing for their country if it meant travel to red list countries.

      Players travelling to red list countries would have had to miss several games on their return because of the 10-day isolation period required under UK rules.

      In addition to missing their sides' weekend games, Chelsea defender Thiago Silva and Manchester United midfielder Fred will also not be allowed to play in their teams' opening Champions League games against Zenit St Petersburg and Young Boys next Tuesday.

      However, it is understood Brazil have not asked for Everton forward Richarlison to be prevented from featuring against Burnley on Monday. It is felt Brazil showed leniency in that specific case as Everton allowed Richarlison to play at the Olympic Games when the regulations did not force them to.

      The move also affects three Liverpool players, Roberto Firmino, Fabinho and Alisson; Manchester City pair Ederson and Gabriel Jesus; and Leeds forward Raphinha, who had been called into the Brazil squad for the first time.

      It means eight Premier League clubs will be denied players this weekend after previous moves from the Mexico, Paraguay and Chile football federations to stop Raul Jimenez, Miguel Almiron and Francisco Sierralta from playing this weekend.

      It is understood the clubs have been notified of the situation by Fifa and are now considering the situation.

      Negotiations are continuing behind the scenes and it is understood the Premier League clubs do not regard this as a fait accompli.

      Fifa president Gianni Infantino previously asked the UK government to provide players with exemptions to allow them to honour their international commitments, even if it meant them travelling to red list countries.

      It is understood the world governing body will keep pushing this given the likelihood of the same situation arising again around international fixtures in October and November.

      The Premier League are also known to be talking to stakeholders across the game to try to work out the best way forward.

      Analysis
      This move has been coming ever since it became obvious there would be no exemptions for players, as Fifa requested and the full extent of the issue is not known yet given some countries are yet to say whether or not they are triggering the rule.

      As automatic restrictions for non-release are within the Fifa rulebook, the world governing body would have to go against the demands of nations who believe they are being disadvantaged to stop the five-day rule being applied. That is not going to happen.

      As the clubs most affected, at least Liverpool and Manchester City's Champions League games next week are outside the stand-down period. And for Chelsea, there is at least the knowledge that Zenit have lost two players as well in Malcolm and Claudinho as Brazil have triggered the same rule for that duo.

      It could also be argued that keeping players back and having them miss one game is far better than letting them leave and then spend 10 days isolating, after which they would need to catch up on fitness work.

      However, with two more international breaks looming, the whole situation is unsatisfactory to say the least.

      In theory, clubs could just ignore the rule - but that would mean them playing an ineligible player, which in itself could have huge ramifications.

      What an absolute joke. Didn't FIFA set the fixture in a red country? Everton get a free pass, because "we like them". Ha.
      Utter disgrace that this is the overarching corporate body of our sport.

      Tell them to go feck themselves, they couldn’t even protect their own players and the game didn’t happen, hopefully that happening will swing in our favour.

      So they punish the Tottenham players for going to play the game, and ban their own Brazilian players for not going to play the game.

      It's a disgrace. The only way to meet the regulations of both countries (especially given the farcical way they cancelled the match) would be for these players to miss several weeks of club football to play one or two Brazilian fixtures.

      I hope the Brazilian players kick up a fuss and threaten to quit the squad over this. It's a joke! Otherwise this will be repeated throughout the season.

      Tell FIFA to f**k off, what they gonna do ? Our own FA should grow a pair and tell them exactly that, our own players are and will be tested regularly and I’m sure will be pretty honest if they felt unwell, f**k FIFA, useless bunch of wankers !!

      Alisson has started 1 of the last 8 games gor Brazil. Fab is behind Fred. For those reasons slone they should both tell Braxil to shove the ban up their arse and that they are no longer available for selection.

      Stupidest thing ive heatd in a long time this snd football throws up a lot of stupid things

      Liverpool and Leeds should just play their Brazilians, Fifa can't give both clubs a forfeit loss (just assuming that would be the punishment)

      Its not Liverpool related and I’m not 100% on the score with Raphinha but from what I can gather is, he was called up to the Brazil side and I think Leeds were going to allow him to play but the player himself turned down the call up so as a result Brazil want him banned too. I believe Raphinha is also eligible to play for Italy, so maybe he’s holding out for a call up from them. Either way, Brazil are making themselves look like fools.

      Disgraceful behaviour from the Brazilian FA. Majority of these players have been fantastic servants down the years and won trophies for their country. Now their country has decided to punish them for a situation which is very much out of their control.

      Maybe I'm blinded here by the fact that I think International footy is sh*te and don't give a f**k about my national team, but if I was one of the players in question I'd be telling the FA to stuff it and retiring from international football - or at least threatening to do so unless they changed their position. Which I'm pretty sure they would, considering they'd be heading into a World Cup year with a good chunk of their first 11 missing.

      Why would anybody want to play for an international side that will stick the boot in and deliberately try and sabotage your own club career at the drop of a hat? Without showing an ounce of consideration for the predicament you may find yourself in. F**k that off. They'd be getting told to do one

      Liverpool will hand debuts to three academy products when they take on Leeds at Elland Road this Sunday afternoon. Larry Smith, John Johnson and Frank Murphy will all make their Premier League bows.
      Youth
      Klopp
      “I’m delighted for the boys,” Jürgen Klopp told Soccer on Sunday.
      “Franky, Johno and Lar are wonderful 17 year-old kids who just happen to look way, way older. Sorry we forgot to ever mention them before. Not sure what happened there, but what’s important now is that journalists don’t do any digging.”
      “For sure, all three will start,” said the German. “Then I’ll probably take them out of the limelight for a long time after the Leeds game. You have to protect young players, and hope everybody forgets about them.”
      “No, probably not,” added Klopp, when asked if the suspended trio of Fabinho, Firmino and Alisson will attend Sunday’s game. “They don’t get on with Franky, Johno and Lar. Bit of a powder keg, so best keep them apart.”

      Exactly, apparently it’s a fine and a 3-0 forfeit to the team who play the banned player! Just come to an agreement with Leeds that both teams play the banned players and let FIFA sort that out! FIFA rival Boris for total incompetence, as for Brazilian FA, they’re a joke.
