Speaking on the vaccination status of Man United’s squad, Ralf Rangnick said: “The Premier League will try everything to keep the league safe and the situation around the players safe.
“We have to encourage players to behave in a disciplined way with regard to contact. We have to make sure we keep most of the players vaccinated.
“As far as I know, we have a high record of vaccinated players at our club, but the past few weeks show that even if you are vaccinated two or three times you can catch the virus, especially the new virus.
“But you are protected from severe symptoms and most of our players who tested positive at least had very very weak symptoms and didn’t suffer.”
The Premier League has confirmed that 84% of their player have taken the vaccine, be it at least one dose or multiple doses.
United reportedly had just 7 players available for the postponed Brighton clash last week, indicating that the majority of the squad could’ve tested positive for Covid-19.
The Red Devils are yet to confirm how many players have been vaccinated, but Rangnick indicates, the majority of the squad seems to have been jabbed already.
