Jose Mourinho, Roma manager has come out to say that Granit Xhaka should seek out a Covid-19 jab after testing positive for coronavirus. Mourinho recently had this to say amid reports that Xhaka is not vaccinated, and the world has been reacting.
His brief words on social media, “Get the jab Granit and be safe.”
Recall that the Swiss Football Association’s head of communications, Adrian Arnold recently said, “Granit Xhaka was not vaccinated,”
“He’s a player who isn’t vaccinated. We left this up to each player. It’s a personal decision of each player – just like any other person in Switzerland.”
“We have issued a recommendation that everyone vaccinates. But he decided for himself personally. And it is also his right not to be vaccinated.”
