Players, coaches and officials present at the EPL games take a knee in support of BLM from the restart of the 2019/20 season.
Harry Kane, Tottenham and England’s forward thinks that the players should remain to engage in the campaign in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
The movement gained popularity after the death of American George Floyd, who was strangled by a police officer in May this year.
“People are asking if we should keep doing this. Yes, we should,” said Kane to BBC.
“They don’t understand that sometimes millions of people around the world are watching us. Of course, people who watch Premier League games every week see the same thing every weekend.”
“But if you look at the whole world, you can see that when some children who are watching football for the first time in their lives see us on our knees, they ask their parents why we do it.”
“This is a great chance to explain why and also to get their point of view across. Education is the main thing that we can do. Adults can explain to their children what it means to stay united and help others regardless of their race.”
