Silva cleared to play for Chelsea after Brazil drop Premier League ban

Silva cleared to play for Chelsea after Brazil drop Premier League ban

Thiago Silva can play for Chelsea today after Premier League clubs won their battle with Brazil over stars not being released for international duty.

Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City and Leeds have also been boosted by the Brazilian football confederation dropping their demands for FIFA to enforce a ban for this weekend’s round of fixtures.

Brazil and Chile — alongside Paraguay and Mexico — have agreed to waive the rule preventing players from playing for five days if they fail to report for international duty, following extensive talks between FIFA and the respective associations.

Top-flight clubs made a collective decision not to release players who would be travelling to red-list countries as they would have to quarantine for 10 days on their return.

FIFA are hopeful of avoiding a similar situation during the international break next month as they have been working with the FA and the Premier League to find a solution with the UK Government over red-list quarantine restrictions.
