ON-LOAN Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira could face a SIX-GAME ban for breaking quarantine rules when he arrived at Flamengo.
Those travelling from the United Kingdom to Brazil face a 14-day quarantine upon arrival due to the country's Coronavirus regulations.
And Pereira could be punished by the Superior Sports Court for Football in Brazil for not following the rules.
Pereira, according to the STJD, only completed half of the fortnight-long quarantine.
In a statement released on Friday, they said: "Flamengo and Andreas Pereira will be judged next Friday, October 8, by the Fifth Disciplinary Committee of the Superior Court of Sports Justice for Football.
"The club was denounced for having climbed halfway before the mandatory 14-day quarantine period established by ANVISA Ordinance 655/2021 for travelers passing through the United Kingdom.
"The player will be liable for conduct contrary to discipline or sports ethics.
"The virtual session is scheduled to start at 10:30 am and will be broadcast live on the STJD do Futebol website."
