Wolves head coach calls on fans to take up COVID-19 vaccinations to save lives and help communities

Nuno Espirito Santo has called on football fans to take the COVID-19 vaccine to save lives and allow life to return to normality.

The Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach is looking forward to having his vaccination after some of his backroom staff had theirs, qualifying through the proviso that it is available to anyone aged 55 or over.

"I see Ron [Picken, kit man], he’s much happier, he feels safer, and only by seeing him every day, I know it’s OK," Nuno, 47, said. "But we cannot relax, because if you had the virus before, you still have to take the vaccine.

"I say to everybody, the vaccine is a key step for easing restrictions"

"I truly believe one of the key factors for us to go back to normal as fast as possible is as many people as possible getting the vaccine.?

"I say to everybody, the vaccine is a key step for easing restrictions, it’s a key step for us to go back.

"With all the respects, with all the individuals’ own beliefs, with all their own doubts, everybody, everybody.

"I’m BAME and I wish that I had the vaccine."

Anyone in the UK with long-term conditions is eligible for the vaccine before others in their age group, with those aged 55 and over the next target. More details are available at

Nuno's generosity

Nuno has already been active helping the local community in Wolverhampton this season, donating £250,000 towards the Wolves Foundation's Feed Our Pack, a new project addressing food poverty in the local community by the club's official charity.
