’ Champions League clash against

Manchester United

which takes place next Wednesday.

Young Boys, however, put an end to the rumors after announcing that they have received a ‘special permit’ which allows them to fly to Manchester for their European standoff.

A statement on the club’s official website reads:

"BSC Young Boys has received a special permit from the Canton of Bern for away games in the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Youth League.

"This means that the players and staff of the teams do not have to be in ten-day quarantine after returning from the UEFA Champions League game against Manchester United on Wednesday, December 8.

"This would have meant that the Swiss champions would not have been able to play their games against Sion (December 12) and Basel (December 15) and would also have played the last game of the year on December 19 in Lugano, coming straight out of quarantine.

"The BSC Young Boys points out that the players and staff will be in a bubble strictly separated from the environment [between] Tuesday, 7 December from the departure at the Wankdorf Stadium via the charter flight to Manchester until the return journey on Thursday, 9 December.

"This concept has already proven its worth on the five European trips to the away games so far this season.

"The BSC YB would like to thank the Canton of Bern for its flexibility and the exemption and will do everything in its power to continue to serve as a role model."
