Several countries around the world are now in lockdown, and if not that then self-isolation, and though several footballers have come up with creative ideas, for others it is seemingly too much to cope with.
Everton’s Oumar Niasse was pulled over by police near Manchester for breaking curfew and former Newcastle player Nolberto Solano has also done the same in his native Peru.
That led to the arrest of the former midfielder, who was enjoying a party with loud music along with another ex-professional, the lesser-known Pablo Zegarra.
It is somewhat surprising given the Peruvian barely ever put a foot out of place on the pitch during his time in England, as he was always a model professional during his time at West Ham, Aston Villa and the Magpies, amongst others.

However, it is perfectly understandable that the police have reacted in this way. Nobody should get away with flaunting the rules and laws that are in place for everyone’s protection, including his own, and it is good to see that police in the UK have acted similarly with Niasse.
It is not yet known what the punishment will be for the ex-Newcastle man, but it is certainly a story for fans to keep updated with.
