‘Should have been scrapped’ ‘Disappointing’ – Fans react as Kabak’s Turkey CB partner isolating after positive Covid tests ‘in their camp’

Posted by

Fans from both Liverpool and Leicester vented their concerns and frustrations following news that Caglar Soyuncu, Ozan Kabak’s defensive partner for Turkey, had gone into isolation after “a number of positive tests in their camp”.

Athletic journalist Rob Tanner tweeted the update, with fans questioning the decision to allow the international break to go ahead whilst COVID-19 was still present.

There were some concerns that the news would lead to Jurgen Klopp sidelining Kabak for last night’s 3-0 victory over Arsenal.

However, with the 20-year-old filing out for 84 minutes, as the Reds registered a third consecutive clean sheet, it would appear that the Schalke man is in the clear.

Nonetheless, even with cases and death rates plummeting, we do have to question why it was necessary for the international break to go ahead.

Given that players are still contracting the virus on international duty, it’s clear that the risk away from club football is still significant.

We completely understand that there was pressure to get the world cup qualifiers underway given that the European Championships had already been delayed, but if there’s a greater risk to players’ health and wellbeing, then surely it makes more sense to delay further?

  1. The internationals are money-spinners for those running the UEFA and FIFA, mostly through TV rights. This is the reason the show must go on.
