Premier League side Watford has released Ismaila Sarr to link up with the Senegal squad for a short period.
Watford had refused to release Sarr who is still struggling with a ligament injury but as reported by The Athletic, the forward will join up Senegal squad today.
“The Senegal Football Federation wishes to express with this communication its deep condemnation of the disrespectful, pernicious and discriminatory behaviour of Watford’s hierarchy who look by all means to prevent a player from playing with his national team,” a statement from Senegal slammed Watford.
The 23-year-old has been included in Senegal’s 28 man squad ahead of the upcoming tournament set to kick off on Sunday.
Sarr has been on the sidelines since November 20th after picking up a knee injury during their 4-1 victory over Manchester United.
