Campbell unhappy with Klopp after divisive Liverpool update via BBC
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is wrong to point the finger at anti-vaxxers, according to Kevin Campbell.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Arsenal and Everton striker suggested the vaccine should be a personal choice for all members of society, including footballers.
Concerns have been raised after it was revealed fewer than half of the players in the Premier League have been vaccinated.
As reported by the BBC (October 3rd), Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp compared not having the vaccine to drink-driving as it endangers others.
It comes after The Sun reported five players in the England squad have not had the jab despite organisers of the Qatar World Cup planning to ban all unvaccinated players.

“Listen, it is a person’s choice as to whether they get the vaccine or not. Not everybody gets the flu vaccine.
“This Covid vaccine is experimental. It is trial. I do not know why it should be forced upon people.
“Even if you have the vaccine it doesn’t stop you getting Covid. What is the problem?
“If you want it, fair enough. I just do not see what the problem is with people not getting it?”
Speaking on vaccinations, Klopp said: “I don’t understand why that is a limitation of freedom.
“Because if it is, then not being allowed to drink and drive is a limitation of freedom as well – but we accept that.”
