Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool’s manager, says he doesn’t understand why some individuals refuse to get the coronavirus vaccine.
Concerns have been raised concerning the vaccination rate in the Premier League, with most clubs vaccinating less than half of their players. Klopp claims that “99 percent” of his players have had their vaccinations.
Meanwhile, Health Secretary Sajid Javid has described the refusal of at least five members of the England squad to be vaccinated as “disappointing.”
His comments came after The Sun claimed that five players have not received the vaccine, despite the fact that the Qatar World Cup organizers intend to ban all unvaccinated players next year.
“I would just appeal to these people, whether they are footballers, whoever it is… that the vaccines are working. Help protect yourself and protect those around you,” Javid told Times Radio.
“They’ve made a conscious choice. It is disappointing, of course it is. “They are role models in society. People, especially young people, I think will look up to them and they should recognise that and the difference that can make in terms of encouraging others.”
