Premier league players have been taking the knee before the start of the match as a sign of stoping racism. They have been doing so for over a year now to spread the message of anti-racism. However, we have some players who have not been kneeling for several reasons. Let's look at them;
1. MARCOS ALONSO (CHELSEA)
Chelsea wing back Marcos Alonso is among those who stopped kneeling before match start. He opted to point at the "No room for racism" badge on the shirt instead. He's however, fully against racism on fellow players.
2. IVAN TONEY (BRENTFORD)
Brentford were not taking the knee in the championship but after premier league promotion, they announced that they will be doing so.
However, striker Ivan Toney started that he will not kneel because his beliefs doesn't change whether in championship or premier league, and feels that they are being used as puppets.
3. WILFRED ZAHA (CRYSTAL PALACE)
Zaha hasn't been taking the knee unlike his teammates. He opted to stand because despite kneeling, some of them are still receiving abuses.
