The Premier League clubs snubbed Brazil and other South American countries in last month’s international games, as they prevented their players from moving to South America for games, as most of the countries were listed in the red list Covid zones.

With the rules more relaxed this time, Premier League clubs had hoped they’d get back their players on time for the upcoming games next weekend.

However, the Daily Mail claim that the Brazilian federation will prevent players from returning to England early ahead of domestic football’s restart.

Players from Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur, Leeds United and Aston Villa were called up to join the Selecao.

The Premier League sides had hopes of extracting their players sooner than anticipated, but the Brazil FA has killed any of such hopes.

Premier League action resumes on the 16th of October, a day before Brazil’s final fixture against Uruguay.

Chelsea defender Thiago Silva played the entire minutes as Brazil bounced from a goal down to beat Venezuela in their World Cup qualifying clash.

The 37-year-old will definitely miss out on Chelsea’s game against Brentford next weekend.
