The Danish Football Federation (DBU) and the club in which the midfielder plays, the Inter de Milan, They also deny that the footballer has been vaccinated.

The Italian station itself denied that statement and demanded that this tweet be removed, something to which the user who initiated the hoax agreed after acknowledging that he was missing “safe enough“of the veracity of your comment.
