Due to his leadership skills, Joshua Kimmich is in the position of the future captain of the German national football team.

At the moment, however, the 26-year-old Bayern Munich midfielder is filling the pages of internet media in a different way than with his football qualities.
He has not been vaccinated against coronavirus and claims that he lacks studies on the possible long-term negative effects of vaccines.
“He’s probably stuck in a network of misinformation. He won’t get advice on what’s not good. At the same time, he has the potential to set an example for people.
It is important to clarify to him that there are no negative forms of long-term effects of vaccines, “said medical expert Alena Buyxová, head of the German Ethics Council.Read more The vaccinated Nagelsmann has a covid. Bayern blew Benfice without it
German government spokesman Steffen Seibert said there were clear and convincing answers to Kimmich’s questions from both German and international experts.
“I believe that Kimmich will have the right information and will reconsider his position on vaccination,” said Steffen Seibert.
His reluctance to vaccinate surprised everyone, because it was Kimmich who, together with his FCB teammate Leon Goretzk, joined the campaign for the “We Kick Corona” collection in March 2020.Read more I don’t want to be a part of this dirt. And you know what? Even so, my words twist
Together, they raised millions of euros for social and charitable organizations to continue their meritorious work during the pandemic. Part of the money raised went to the accounts of medical associations.
“We have also supported UNICEF, which makes vaccines available in all countries. So it’s not about being a vaccine denier.
However, I think that everyone has the right to decide freely. There are many people with different mindsets and they should also be respected.
The debate that turns out that an unvaccinated person is automatically an opponent of everything related to COVID-19 is shameful, “Kimmich said.
The 60-year-old German representative has not ruled out that he could be vaccinated in the near future, but he is not yet sure.
His current position records the representatives of the far-right Alternative for Germany (AFD), which has long opposed measures to suppress the coronavirus and does not see vaccination as the easiest way back to normal life.
The German Institute of Public Health currently reports that 55 million people have already been vaccinated, which is 66.2% of the total adult population in Germany. This does not include children under 12 years old.
“The more people get vaccinated, the less dangerous the virus will be,” said Jesse Marsch, an American coach at RB Leipzig.Read more You let Magica play with HIV! Republicans hold the side of an unvaccinated star
Kimmmich Akiste is not the only Bundesliga footballer who has not been vaccinated against coronavirus.
However, his word and attitudes should have a wider public impact, as he recently took over the captain’s armband in the absence of four-time world champions in the absence of Manuel Neuer.
“As an example for others, but also for extremely practical reasons, it would be good if he underwent vaccination,” said Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, former president of Bayern Munich, about Kimmich.
His successor, Oliver Kahn, added: “We at the club recommend that people be vaccinated. On the other hand, we try to respect other opinions as well. “Read more Klopp launched antivaxers: Your freedom? You’re like drunk behind the wheel
Bavarian head coach Julian Nagelsmann recently contracted the coronavirus despite being fully vaccinated. He is currently in home isolation, but he is doing well.
Assistant Din Toppmöller is regularly supplied with reports of tactical preparation for matches. FC Bayern is at the top of the table after nine Bundesliga rounds by one point ahead of Borussia Dortmund and three points ahead of Freiburg.
Even more sovereign are the Bavarians in the Champions League, where after three rounds of the group stage they are at the head of the E-group with a full number of 9 points and a score of 12: 0
