Romelu Lukaku believes that soccer must do more to combat racism

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku believes that the world of football must fight racism “with greater force” and doubts the effectiveness of the knee-down gesture made by players before the start of Premier League matches.

“We can take stronger positions,” the Chelsea forward told CNN Sport. “It’s true, we put our knees on the ground and everyone applauds, but sometimes, after the games, there has been an insult,” added the Belgian international.

Lukaku would prefer that influential gamers and social media owners as well as other actors come together to attack racism on their platforms.

“The captain and four or five players with a strong personality from each team should meet with the leaders of Instagram, governments and the English Football Federation (FA), to discuss this situation,” said the Belgian.
