The Montreal Impact has received a boost from Public Health in preparation for the Major League Soccer (MLS) playoffs since the club has been authorized to train in the metropolis.

In an interview with the program “JiC” of the TVA Sports network on Wednesday, the sports director of Bleu-Blanc-Noir, Olivier Renard, said that the organization had just concluded an agreement with the health authorities.
“We will be able to stay in Montreal to train there until the last moment before going to New England,” said Renard.
The Impact has an appointment with the New England Revolution on November 20 as part of a play-off. Without this compromise from Public Health, the players would have left the Quebec metropolis in the coming days.
“That, I must say, is a moral aid at all levels,” said Renard. We might have already left tomorrow or Friday for New Jersey and, there, that gives the players one more week to recover and enjoy their families. It’s going to be a modified quarantine, that is to say: home, training ground, home, training ground, nothing else. “
Renard also confirmed what was already suspected: midfielder Victor Wanyama, selected by the Kenya national team, will miss the call against the Revolution.
