George Floyd: EPL reveals decision on banning players who support Black Lives Matter movement

The Premier League has said it will support players, who kneel as a public show supporting the Black Lives Matter movement when the season resumes next week, according to Sky Sports.

The Football Association assured players that they would treat any manifestation of anti-racist or political gestures with “common sense”.

This follows the global protests that have continued since George Floyd’s death in the United States last month.

Liverpool and Chelsea are among the best clubs to kneel during training to show solidarity with last week’s movement.

The German FA has decided not to act against the English international Jadon Sancho and other Bundesliga players, who have shown anti-racism messages after Floyd’s death.

In addition, earlier this month, FIFA president Gianni Infantino said that Bundesliga players who protested against Floyd’s death on the pitch “deserve applause and not punishment.”
