They are very strong indications that Senegal  winger Ismaila Sarr has been ruled out of the AFCON 2021 after he was assessed by the national teams medical staff.

Watford reluctantly released Sarr on Tuesday to travel to Dakar and be assessed by the Senegal team doctor for a knee injury that has kept him out of action since November 20.

“Watford believed Ismaila Sarr was not fit enough to feature in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) and yet he was still sent to Senegal as they wanted to make their own assessment,” The Athletic reported on Friday.

“It was a club versus country row and now he’ll be sent to Spain to see a knee specialist.

“The Senegal coach has acknowledged that he’s not ‘100 per cent’ fit.”

Sarr, who travelled with Senegal to Cameroon on Wednesday, is now expected back at Watford on January 10.
