Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has said football player should not be considered for COVID-19 vaccines for now.
He said this interaction to a question on whether players should be fast tracked for the vaccines.
According to Mourinho, there are more important people than footballers, adding that healthworkers and young people should be considered first.
“I wouldn’t [agree]. Maybe it’s controversial, maybe people disagree with me but I wouldn’t,” he told a news conference.
“There are people in much bigger risks than we, and especially young football players, are.
“I feel that people on the front line every day — health workers and older people — of course, I think they should be in front. But that’s just my feeling.”
