Before that, Jürgen Klopp also sounded the alarm regarding the Omicron variant. Due to the rapid expansion of the new variant, some clubs and coaches recently requested the cancellation of match days or even a longer break. Some games have already had to be postponed in the Premier League. According to the Liverpool coach, the game plan needs to be more flexible, especially for those teams that play internationally. Klopp continued: “There are two extreme scenarios: either everyone is vaccinated or none is vaccinated. And if no one was vaccinated, people would die like flies. Just because so many are vaccinated, some have the freedom not to have to be vaccinated, ”said the German star trainer.
Jürgen Klopp went even further and said that he no longer wanted to sign unvaccinated players. An unvaccinated player is a constant threat. Aston Villa coach Steven Gerrard and Crystal Palace coach Patrick Vieira had already stated that the vaccination status of players before transfers would play an essential role at their clubs. The Premier League is currently plagued by many corona cases, so only four of the ten games planned for this weekend can take place.
