In Romania, club president George Becali from FCSB has banned his players from having the corona vaccination and is making a drastic comparison.

Corona chaos at the Romanian first division club FCSB Bucharest. For the league game on Saturday, the club, formerly known as Steaua Bucharest, only had 14 players available – also because club president George Becali forbids professionals and employees to be vaccinated against Covid-19.

“If I had a gun on the table next to the vaccination, I’d rather shoot myself,” says Becali from Romanian journalist Emanuel Rosu Twitter quoted: “There is no vaccination at the FCSB.”

Several Bucharest players have recently contracted Corona. The same goes for trainer Edward Iordanescu and his assistants.

The functionary is not a blank slate in Romania when it comes to controversial statements. For example, he made fun of the hairstyle of one of his players.

“Have you ever seen a bald footballer playing with the number 10? It is impossible! Has anyone seen a bald man play football well?” Said Becali of Polish midfielder Rafal Grzelak.

The 63-year-old, once active as a politician, has already been sentenced to prison and suspended sentences several times. He is also said to have right-wing extremist tendencies. Bekali has been the owner of the FCSB since 2003. Bucharest was the last Romanian champion in 2015 and was also often represented in the Champions League.
