Players are “overwhelmingly in support” of continuing to take a knee to highlight racial inequality and fight discrimination, says the Professional Footballers’ Association.
The players’ union consulted members on whether they wanted to continue the gesture after some fans booed it.
Members were asked whether an alternative should explored, but they wanted to continue with “this act of solidarity” before kick-off.
“The results were clear,” said the PFA.
“Players overwhelmingly support continuing this act of solidarity despite any adverse responses that may be received.” (BBC)
