Emiliano Martínez and Emiliano Buendía could play again this weekend with Aston Villa, after completing the fourteen-day quarantine in Croatia, after international commitments with Argentina.
The goalkeeper and the attacker traveled to Croatia from Brazil to exercise instead of carrying out the mandatory ten-day quarantine in the United Kingdom, which they would have had to do in a hotel without access to train.
“We hope they join the team tomorrow morning,” Villamos coach Dean Smith told a news conference.
“Then we will decide if they are ready to play or not. We have the data of what they have been doing every day in Croatia. They sent it directly to the performance department and from there to the coaches. They are in good physical shape, which is what we needed to know. We’ll wait until tomorrow and see, “he added.
Aston Villa will face Everton this Saturday in the Premier League.
