What They're Saying: Thomas Tuchel

“It would be easy to say yes now and get maybe applause from a lot of people. But at the same time do I have the right to say it? I’m not so sure. I can make the decision for myself, and everybody else needs to reflect about it and take a risk or not. I think it’s a serious question and vaccination seems to be a proper protection. I am vaccinated. But I don’t really see myself in a position to speak out on proper recommendations. I think that would go too far. I’m a football coach, I’m not a 100% expert in this and I would leave it up to them. Everybody is adult enough and everybody lives in a free country, which is a good thing."
