I would Not Take The Knee Again Before Matches- Marcos Alonso

Marcos Alonso has announced that he will no longer take a knee before games since the anti-racism gesture is "losing strength" for him.

Instead, the Spain left-back claims he'll point to the Premier League's 'No Room for Racism' logo on his sleeve.

Players have been kneeling since the summer of 2020 to express support for the racial equality movement.

This is what Marcos Alonso said he will do:

"I am fully against racism and all forms of discrimination," Alonso stated. "I just prefer to put my finger on the badge that says no to racism, as they do in other sports and football in other countries."

"I like to do it this way and, of course, to say definitively that I am opposed to racism and that I appreciate all people."

When asked if his choice to quit kneeling was influenced by politics, Alonso answered, "I don't know, I just like to do it this way."

"And I'm afraid I'd lose a little strength doing it the other way, so I'd rather do it this way and show I totally support the battle against racism."
