Brazil supreme court to ban former Man Utd midfielder

Mon 04 October 2021 | 13:49

The former Red Devils midfielder will probably be banned from accompanying his team for 6 games.

Manchester United

midfielder Andreas Pereira will be suspended for six games after violating quarantine rules in Brazil.

Pereira, who joined Manchester United in 2014 as a talented teenager, has spent his last seven seasons at Old Trafford. He has never been in the Red Devils' starting line-up and is currently on loan at Flamengo, but is said to have broken Covid-19 protocols when he returned home.

Under Brazilian law, if people travel from the UK to Brazil, they must be quarantined for 14 days. However, Pereira remained in quarantine for seven days and was then added to his new teammates at Flamengo. Now the Brazilian Supreme Court of Sport intends to severely punish the former Manchester United midfielder.

The court's statement reads:

"Flamengo and Andreas Pereira will be judged next Friday, October 8, by the Fifth Disciplinary Committee of the Superior Court of Sports Justice for Football.

"The club has been charged for having ended halfway before the mandatory 14-day quarantine period established by ANVISA Ordinance 655/2021 for travellers passing through the United Kingdom."
