Marcos Alonso Confirms He No Longer Want To Take A kneel Before Matches

Spanish and Chelsea defender, Marcos Alonso, has confirmed that he will no longer take a knee like others before matches, because the anti-racism gesture was “losing strength”.

Marcos Alonso, said he will make his own protests against racism and discrimination in football in his own way by pointing to the ‘No Room for Racism’ badge on his sleeve.

“I am fully against racism and I’m against every type of discrimination, and I just prefer to put my finger to the badge where it says no to racism, like they do in some other sports and football in other countries,” Alonso said.

Following the resumption of Premier League football after a COVID-19-enforced break last year, players, officials and staff have been taking a knee before kick-off to show support for the movement for racial equality.

On if his decision to stop the anti-racism gesture had anything to do with politics, Alonso said: “I don’t know, I just prefer to do it this way.”

The defender has been refusing to take a knee since the start of this season like most other players in English football

Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha was the first player in the English top flight to opt out of the gesture earlier this year.

He explained that taking a knee was “degrading”, adding that there should be better education, and that social media companies should be taking stronger action against online abuse.
