Premier League footballers will continue to put their knees on the ground

Premier League players will continue to put one knee on the ground during the 2021/2022 season as a show of solidarity towards the fight against discrimination, the English league said on Tuesday.

“We think that now, more than ever, it is important for us to continue to take this knee (on the ground) as a symbol of our unity against all forms of racism,” he said.

The Premier League footballers began to make this symbolic gesture with the resumption of the matches in June 2020.

“Following the meeting of the club captains, this collective commitment was reaffirmed and the Premier will continue to support the voice of the players on this important issue,” said Premier Executive Director Richard Masters.
