After the sustained increase in cases in the country, which yesterday registered a record number of 20 thousand 870 infections in one day, the AFA arranged new controls for players, who, among other things, must attend training in their private cars.
Not bathing in the facilities of the institutions or using the changing rooms will be among the new restrictions for Argentine football.
According to the president of the Atlético de Lanús Club, Nicolás Russo, after a meeting of the Executive Committee, they will try not to stop First Division football and promotion categories. Each one from his place has to contribute to generate the measures, he said.
In a statement, the AFA expressed its deep concern regarding the growing number of Covid-19 cases, both in society and in different football teams.
‘In line with the guidelines of the health policy carried out by the Government, this association urges the clubs, players, members of the institutions and the entire football family in general, to strictly comply with the health protocols duly approved’ , noted the Association.
It also adds that inspections will be carried out in the coming days to corroborate exhaustive compliance with all measures.
If they are not complied with, a report will be submitted to the Disciplinary Court in order for it to act according to its competence, the AFA warned.
