Premier League player to continue knelling as a symbol of Unity

Players from all 20 Premier League clubs say they will continue to take the knee as a symbol of their “unity against all forms of racism”.

The Premier League “wholeheartedly support” the decision that has been made.

A ‘No Room For Racism’ sleeve badge will also be worn by players and match officials on their shirts.

The opening game of the season sees newly promoted Brentford host Arsenal on Friday, 13 August.

In February, Brentford announced they would no longer be participating in the gesture as the West London club felt it no longer had the required impact.

However, it is understood Brentford players have agreed to take part.
