The European Club Association (ECA) would like to discuss the safety of the players selected for the African Cup with FIFA. The Federation is concerned about the now widespread omikron variant, which originated in South Africa.
Several countries have introduced no-fly zones since the outbreak of the Omikron variant in South Africa. The European Club Association, which represents 240 clubs, said: “The council wants to speak urgently to FIFA to ensure that all necessary precautions are taken to protect players.”
A total of 24 countries participate in the Africa Cup, which will be held in Cameroon between January 9 and February 6. Sebastian Haller, Andre Onana and Ibrahim Sangari will participate in the tournament from the Eredivisie. Some Premier League clubs already in September refused to allow their players to go to countries that were on the UK’s “red list”.
The Egyptian Chefs Association also said it had voted unanimously against FIFA’s plan to host the World Cup every two years.
