Liverpool’s Brazilian duo Alisson Becker and Fabinho will travel directly to Spain from international duty to complete their Covid-19 quarantine.
The club are sending them to Madrid, where Liverpool face Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday, to finish their 10 days in isolation.
Brazil have just played World Cup qualifiers in Colombia and Venezuela.
Both of those countries are on the UK’s red list.
“We had to sort quarantine issues and the decision we made is the boys will not be here [Liverpool],” said Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.
“They will go directly to Madrid, wait there for us, hopefully be able to play against Atletico, then will come back slightly later than us, so then they can come back in our normal procedure again.”
“Obviously they could have flown into England but with all the quarantine stuff that would have meant they would have to isolate from their families.
“Ali has three kids and being away with the national teams and then 10 days in isolation with the same rubbish again… we need solutions for that and they are still not there.
