With a squad meeting scheduled, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is concerned about Covid vaccinations.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is concerned that some of his players would refuse to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claims he’s having trouble persuading his players of the benefits of getting vaccinated against Covid.
Adidas and Manchester United have unveiled their official 2021/22 home jersey, which features a modern take on the club’s traditional designs.
Until now, United’s manager has left it up to the players to decide whether or not to be jabbed.
However, with the start of the new season just over a week away, Solskjaer will conduct a meeting with his players to reiterate the message to any worried about how it might damage their fitness.
“We’ve advised them, and some of them are fully vaccinated, while others are unsure,” Solskjaer added.
“However, we’re going to have a larger meeting with them today because I believe it’s critical that everyone understands what’s going on.”
The late arrivals of some stars after campaigns in the Euros or Copa America have affected Solskjaer’s pre-season.
However, a potential Covid epidemic hampered United’s preparations, forcing them to cancel a friendly with Preston.
When the afflicted athletes were subjected to PCR tests, those nine positive Lateral Flow Tests turned out to be erroneous.
However, it has made Solskjaer apprehensive about the possibility of greater interruption once the Premier League season begins.
“The Preston incident was a testing error since all nine tested positive and then were negative the next day when we ran a genuine PCR test,” he explained.
“However, if that occurred the day before the league’s first game, that would be an issue.
“It took time away from our preparation. We had to miss a couple of days of training because of it.
“We have to be very careful because if they stay in one spot for too long, they could catch anything, so we have to be very cautious.”
Fans should be patient if players deny requests for selfies or autographs, according to Solskjaer.
“We want to do it, but we can’t because catching something here results in a four-game suspension. That is difficult for us,” he stated.
