Mazraoui and Traoré do not have to be quarantined

On Tuesday Ajax did not want Mazraoui, Traoré, Zakaria Labyad (Morocco) and Mohammed Kudus (Ghana) to go to areas where the Dutch government has an orange or red travel advice due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

The Moroccan Football Association therefore caused some surprise on Friday by reporting that Mazraoui has joined the selection, but a spokesperson for Ajax informs Press that the club has given permission for this.

“Ajax has consulted with the three relevant unions and it has been agreed that Mazraoui and Traoré will still travel and Labyad, whose wife is about to give birth, and Kudus, who is not fit for competition, may stay in the Netherlands”, he says.

Morocco will practice in Rabat against Senegal (Friday) and the Democratic Republic of Congo (Tuesday). Burkina Faso will play friendly against the Democratic Republic of Congo (Friday) and Madagascar (Monday) in Morocco.

Under the special corona rules of the FIFA World Football Association, a club may prohibit internationals from traveling to the national team for friendly duels, provided they are played in risk areas.

Mazraoui and Traoré do not have to be quarantined when they return to the Netherlands. Normally, people returning from Morocco must be quarantined for ten days, but the cabinet has made an exception for elite athletes, among others.

André Onana reported to Ajax again on Friday. He was supposed to take on Senegal with Cameroon in Utrecht on Friday, but dropped out on Thursday because of an alleged positive test for the corona virus, but that later turned out not to be the case.
