Wimbledon have refused to give Novak Djokovic any guarantees he will be allowed to play at SW19 this year after the world No 1 insisted he will not take part in any future Grand Slams if forced to vaccinate against covid.

Twenty-time Grand Slam winner Djokovic, 34, on Tuesday insisted: “That is the price I am willing to pay.”

Djokovic was deported when he tried to enter the country to play at the Australian Open last month, after initially being allowed in.

Rafael Nadal instead clinched his 21st Grand Slam at Djokovic’s expense to overtake both the Serb and Roger Federer.

He now faces the same situation for the French Open in May – with the country’s health minister saying athletes must be vaccinated, or recently recovered, to play.

Wimbledon, despite there being no UK government rules on athletes requiring vaccines, said they were yet to finalise arrangements, but were in constant dialogue with the government.

Djokovic said: “I understand the consequences of my decision. Not being vaccinated, I am unable to travel to most of the tournaments at the moment. That is the price I’m willing to pay.

“Everybody has the right to choose whatever is appropriate for them.”

But the Serb, 34, insisted he is not part of the anti-vaxxer movement.

But four-time former Wimbledon semi-finalist, and current All England Club committee member, Tim Henman offered hope to the Serb.

He said: “To get into the UK at the moment, those are the guidelines the Championships will be following. It is going to be government-led.

“By taking himself out of the chance to compete in Grand Slams he is jeopardising his chances of being the greatest male player of all time – and that speaks volumes to his courage, conviction and belief.”

Djokovic’s great rival Nadal edged ahead of him with his 21st Grand Slam win in Melbourne and is hoping for a 14th triumph at Roland Garros.

That decision failed to pay off, however, with the Red Devils sacking Moyes after just 10 months in charge.

After the current West Ham boss came Van Gaal, who arrived with big things expected due to his past success at the likes of Barcelona and Ajax.

Giggs was hoping to get the Red Devils job himself, which was why he stayed, but both ended up leaving nearly six years ago.

When Jose Mourinho took over, he opted to maintain his close relationship with Rui Faria – who had previously worked under him at clubs such as Real Madrid and Chelsea.

Fair departed in the summer of 2018, though, with Michael Carrick then given a place on Mourinho’s bench.

Carrick stayed to work under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with the Norwegian also regularly picking up the thoughts of Phelan and Kieran McKenna throughout his spell in the dugout.
