Manchester City withdraws their pre-season friendlies due to isolation

Manchester City have suspended their pre-season friendlies against Troyes in France because of the British necessity of quarantine, confirmed the English club on Wednesday.

Premier League side has called off their pre-season friendly game against Troyes in France because of British quarantine ordinance.  The club announced the cancellation news on Wednesday through their social media handle.

“Manchester City are disappointed to confirm that our planned pre-season friendly at fellow CFG club ES Troyes AC has been cancelled,” asserted the premier league side club.


The condition by the British government rule is that anyone who enters the country from France is required isolation at home or in another settlement for five to ten days.

“Both clubs explored all avenues to be able to play the game, but the recent UK government changes to quarantine rules for travellers returning from France has made the required restrictions too difficult to overcome,” said the club.

The first-team team of the City will proceed with their pre-season practices in Manchester without any projects of displacing the friendlies as their second-tier Preston North End to be played which are scheduled for July 27 behind the sealed doors followed by their fixture of August 7 at Wembley Stadium against Leicester City.

Meanwhile, Premier League champions are also set to pay tribute to their former player Sergio Aguero who has appeared in 275 games, netted 184 goals and provided 47 assists for them, through their recent home kit of the season 2021/22.
