“If they force me to form a women’s team, I will retire from football! How do you do something against God’s will? I don’t do things against nature, it goes in the direction of Satan’s ideas, girls can play handball or basketball, which are nice sports. These simply despicable and sexist remarks come from the mouth of George Becali, Gigi for those close to him, the sulphurous owner of the FCSB (resulting from a split in 2017 with CSA Steaua Bucharest). Known for his shock statements, his escapades, the one who was sentenced to prison for a fraudulent land exchange has just distinguished himself in a funny way. Indeed, as an anti-vaccine against Covid-19, Gigi Becali has just announced that he will no longer allow vaccinated players to play for his club.
The reason ? According to him, the vaccinated people have become “powerless”. “You will laugh, but I may be right. The vaccinated lose their strength. It’s something scientific. I also see mine, vaccinated. It doesn’t affect some, but it does affect those who are older.” he explained in particular. He also explained that his recruit, former Nantes player Claudiu Keserü was no longer going to wear the FCSB jersey because he is vaccinated in offers collected by Sport.ru : “I gave him the money, I had a contract with him, he was a football player, I was the owner. I said, ”You can’t go to that level anymore. You can play in Romania, but not at FCSB and CFR (Cluj editor’s note). He said he would show me, but he has nothing to show me. It can’t be at this level anymore. This is possible thanks to the vaccine. I say what I think. I don’t want to offend him.”
