John Egan Republic of Ireland

Republic of Ireland defender John Egan has come out in defence of his teammate Callum Robinson after the forward revealed his decision against getting vaccinated. Robinson has already tested positive twice for the virus and has missed games for both club and country. Recently, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp came out and said he is frustrated with the reluctance of players to get vaccinated. Post his revelation, Callum Robinson was “vilified” on social media.

“I suppose first and foremost, Cal was asked a question, he gave an answer,” Republic of Ireland defender John Egan said. “He didn’t come out and say he was against the vaccination or anything, so I was quite disappointed to see how many people jumped down his throat. Everybody can choose whether to get the vaccination or not, it’s a personal choice. As a team-mate, as a friend, I back my team-mates, I back my friends.”

“It doesn’t mean that I believe the same way, it doesn’t mean that everybody is going to believe the same way, but I don’t think Cal came out and said he was against the vaccine, he simply just answered a question and said he hasn’t had it yet,” he added. “As far as that’s concerned, Cal is a team-mate of mine, he’s a friend of mine and hopefully now he can kick on with Ireland and do well. What I can say about Callum Robinson is that he’s such a popular member of the squad. He’s a breath of fresh air.”
