The former Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech, who is now an advisor at Stamford Bridge, is puzzled as to why the Blues pair have been singled out.
Mount and Chilwell interacted with their Chelsea team-mate Gilmour at full-time following England’s draw with Scotland on Friday.
Cech has added his voice to those questioning the decision behind Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell being forced to take in a period of self-isolation while away with England, with the former
Chelsea goalkeeper ratted that decision “incomprehensible”.
Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell will miss Tuesday’s Euro 2020 clash with the Czech Republic after going into self-isolation.
Questions have been asked as to why two men who have posted negative tests are having to sit out major international outings while those in the Scottish camp, who have been working alongside Gilmour on a daily basis, are free to continue going about their business.
Petr Cech has posted on Social Media questioning why Mount and Chilwell who tested negative for Covid19 have to be left out of England squad and have to isolate for 10 days.
“Please could someone help me understand how it is possible Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell – both with negative tests – have to isolate after they got in contact with Billy Gilmour while the entire Scottish team who shared the dressing room, hotel, coach and plane while travelling, doing room and meeting room is allowed to play the game without any problem because they returned with the required negative tests?
“What is the difference between them returning the same test results? It is incomprehensible.”
The Gareth Southgate side have already found a place in the last 16 of Euro 2020 but are yet to determine when they will play next.
Topping their group would see them return to action on June 29, with Mount and Chilwell back in contention, but a runners-up finish would see them take to the field a day earlier without the Chelsea pair coming back into the fold.
