WSL stars risk breaking Covid-19 rules by jetting to Maldives and Dubai

Women’s Super League stars could find themselves in trouble with the authorities.

All WSL players in Tier 4 areas were warned by their clubs to not go away over Christmas despite many not seeing their families for several months because of the Government’s restrictions.

However, it appears as though some have risked sanctions by heading abroad, and they have been keen to share images of their trips on social media.

West Ham's Alisha Lehmann was waiting for her partner Ramona Bachmann in the Maldives, while Katie McCabe of Arsenal traveled to Dubai as did her partner Ruesha Littlejohn.

McCabe, 25, has posted a snap on social media of her in Dubai.

According to the Telegraph, McCabe said she was in Dubai for a business meeting with her agent.

Having joined Arsenal back in 2015, the former Shelbourne player has helped the club to both FA Women’s Cup and FA Women's Super League glory.

Lehmann uploaded a video of herself dancing outside a villa in the Maldives on Wednesday.

Bachmann, 29, then posted photos of her boarding a flight to Male with the caption “On my way @AlishaLehmann7."

Lehmann joined West Ham from BSC YB Frauen back in 2018, while Bachmann spend three years with Chelsea before moving to France with PSG in July.

Covid-19 tests were carried across both the WSL and Women's Championship as recently as last week, with 32 returning positive from a total of 864.

That figure is nearly half the total of postive tests that have been recorded since testing began an the top level of the women’s game back in July 2.

The league is not due to resume until January 9, and before the break Arsenal boss Joe Montemurro had urged his team to 'follow Government guidelines'.
