Every Premier league player should show solidarity against racism

Kick it out Chairman Sanjay Bhandari has called on every premier league player to show support for “Black Lives Matter” amid the killing of George Floyd.

Racism has been trending on Social Media in last week while German bundesliga players like Marcus Thuram, Jadon Sancho, Achraf Hakimi have shown their support in kicking out racism.

While Acknowledging the support of those players, Bhandari wants the DFB in Germany to show leniency in them sanctioning the bundesliga players.

SOCCER PUNCH learnt what Bhandari said which read: “I hope there will be a degree of leniency shown by the German authorities,” 

“I’m not sure how you can sanction Marcus Thuram. I don’t think he’s done anything wrong. He’s just taken a knee.

“I wonder if that’s the thing I would encourage if players want to protest. If you score a goal and take a knee could everyone do that? Not just the black players. The white players too – everyone.

“Every player should do it. It should be teams doing it. You saw the Erling Haaland celebration after the first game back where all the Borussia Dortmund players did the social-distancing celebration. They could all take a knee.

“Racism’s not about black players or brown fans. It’s about all of us. Racism corrodes society and we’re all hurt by it. Everyone should want to demonstrate their solidarity and disgust.”
