Manchester United block Lindelof from joining Sweden squad for friendly in coronavirus-hit Denmark

Manchester United have blocked Victor Lindelof from linking up with the Sweden squad for their friendly with Denmark due to Covid-19 travel restrictions currently in place throughout the United Kingdom.

Quarantine exemptions are being offered for elite sportspeople amid the global pandemic, but no green light will be given for Lindelof or four other members of the Sweden squad that are based in English and Scottish football.

A statement from the Swedish FA on its official website read: “Sweden's five national team players from England and Scotland will not be available in the international training match against Denmark due to quarantine rules. Instead, the players will join the national team gathering in Stockholm after the match.

“The five players affected are Robin Olsen, Emil Krafth, Filip Helander, Victor Lindelof and Ken Sema. Due to the United Kingdom's quarantine rules against Denmark, the quintet will not be released by their clubs to take part in the international match.

“If the players need to be quarantined for more than five days after the national team gathering, there is no requirement for the clubs to release the players. In this case, our players will not be released for the match against Denmark.

“However, the clubs release the players for the other two matches, against Croatia and France, says national team manager Stefan Pettersson. Substitutes will be called in for the international match against Denmark.”

Sweden are due to face Denmark on Wednesday, before then taking in UEFA Nations League clashes with Croatiaand France. Lindelof will hope to figure in the competitive outings.
