Emi Martinez of Aston Villa facing a race against time
Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez will face a race against time to return to England for the Premier League encounter against Wolves after the international break.
Villa received a major boost as to its availability after the announcement by the government that the double-bitten players will be able to accomplish their international matches in the countries of the red zone and will be able to participate in training and matches upon their return to England.
The easing of restrictions means Martinez will be able to move straight from his international squad bubble to his club bubble, allowing him to complete both training and games, although he still won’t be able to mingle with the big one. public for 10 days from its return.
The latest international break saw Martinez miss the trip to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea due to isolation rules upon his return from international duty.
Although the goalkeeper is no longer forced to miss a game after next week’s international break, he has a quick turnaround to return in time for the clash against Wolves.
Argentina’s last break game against Peru kicks off Friday at 12:30 a.m. in the UK, with Bruno Lage’s side game at Villa Park only taking place 36 hours later at 3 p.m. on Saturday.
Martinez is expected to jump on a private flight right after the full-time whistle blows in order to get back in time to start in Villa’s goal against Wolves.
This is not the first time the Villa keeper has raced against time to return to Birmingham before starting a Premier League game. Following last month’s international break, Martinez kept his clean sheet in the 3-0 win over Everton just 15 hours after returning from Croatia where he spent his 10-day isolation period.
