WARSAW (Reuters) – Poland’s Prime Minister has known as German Chancellor Angela Merkel to ask that two nationwide crew gamers be exempt from quarantine guidelines when re-entering Germany after a soccer World Cup qualifier in opposition to England, Warsaw stated on Saturday.
The 2 gamers – Robert Lewandowski and Krzysztof Piatek – play for German Bundesliga golf equipment, who may cease them from going to Britain for the match as that might imply they’d miss video games with their groups once they return as a consequence of quarantine guidelines.
“The prime minister requested the chancellor for the principles to be imposed equally and pretty in the direction of all nationwide representations and, due to this, the Polish Bundesliga gamers will even be capable to benefit from them,” Deputy International Minister Pawel Jablonski advised Polish state information company PAP.
The Polish overseas ministry didn’t reply to Reuters request for remark. A German authorities spokesman stated Merkel’s workplace doesn’t touch upon non-public discussions.
It’s formally as much as the regional governments in Germany to grant quarantine exceptions, which aren’t unprecedented.
Lewandowski performs for Bayern Munich whereas Piatek performs for Hertha Berlin.
