Piers Morgan believes footballers who do not want to get the Covid jab should be ‘refused’ treatment for their injuries. 

The former Good Morning Britain presenter shared his thoughts on the large number of football .ers who reportedly haven’t been double-vaccinated as protection against the potentially fatal disease.

Last week, the English Football League said 25% of .ers at the member clubs say they ‘do not intend to get jabbed’. 

Piers, 56, feels it would be hypocritical of the .ers to then receive medical treatment when they apparently distrust the vaccine.

He tweeted on Sunday: ‘Footballers who refuse to be jabbed should be refused treatment for injuries. After all, why should they trust doctors about treatment for broken legs & torn ligaments if they don’t trust them about a life-saving vaccine?’ 

The EFL previously confirmed that 19 football matches had been cancelled this weekend alone due to Covid outbreaks within the clubs. The Premier League also said five of its matches had been called off with positive cases of coronavirus at an all-time record high in the UK due to the new Omicron variant sweeping the nation.

Elsew. in his tweeting spree, Piers told his followers: ‘The Govt should promote vaccines/boosters to the sceptical with this sl.n: “Don’t be a prick – get a prick”.’

The broadcaster contracted Covid himself in July after attending England’s final game in the Euro 2020 at Wembley Stadium, w. thousands of others were in attendance. 

He has since battled long Covid with various symptoms including cold sweats, prolonged loss of taste and smell and a new eye condition.

However, he recently revealed that his new medication seems to be working. 

When one of his Twitter followers tweeted: ‘If you haven’t seen me recently it’s because I’ve got a nasty case of long covid. Eight months and counting :(,’ Piers responded: ‘DM me… I had same for 5 months but new meds seem to be cracking it.’
