    well thankfully this happens soon after the Cagliari game and now is International break and Ibra is started to train again. It is bad loosing him to covid but at least the damage will be minimal.

    I know even if vaccinated theres a small chance getting affected but hasnt our players been vaccinated ? because if anyone should be vaccinated it seems like they are amongst a group of people that should be mandatory vaccinated as they are a huge risk group in europe due to their traveling and close contact with a large group of people both on and off the field-

    Last season if our starting striker went down we’d be playing Leao or Rebic up top. Now we have choices thankfully.
