Premier League players will continue to take a knee

Premier League players from all the 20 clubs have announced that they will continue to take a knee for the 2021/22 season as their opposition to racism. Players and staff have been doing so since June 2020. The players have been completely supported by the Premier League with all players set to wear the ‘No Room For Racism’ badges on their jerseys.

“We feel now, more than ever, it is important for us to continue to take the knee as a symbol of our unity against all forms of racism.” Premier League players said in a statement in regard to taking a knee. “We remain resolutely committed to our singular objective of eradicating racial prejudice wherever it exists, to bring about a global society of inclusion, respect, and equal opportunities for all.”

“Following our club captains’ meeting, that collective commitment was reaffirmed and the Premier League will continue to support the players’ strong voice on this important issue.” the statement continued. “Racism in any form is unacceptable and No Room For Racism makes our zero-tolerance stance clear. The Premier League will continue to work with our clubs, players and football partners to bring about tangible change to remove inequality from our game.”

Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha was the first player to stop taking a knee. He revealed that he believed the act was degrading. Newly promoted Brentford too stopped taking a knee as they felt the gesture no longer had an impact.
