Lukaku joins Alonso in questioning taking knee before games: ‘We can take stronger positions’

A large number of footballers have been subjected to racist abuse in recent years and have spoken out against it. Romelu Lukaku is one of those players.

In a recent interview with CNN, Lukaku said of the issue: “The captains of every team, and four or five players, like the big personalities of every team, should have a meeting with the CEOs of Instagram and governments and the FA and the PFA.

“We should just sit around the table and have a big meeting about it. [It is] how we can attack it straight away, not only from the men’s game, but also from the women’s game.

“I think just all of us together and just have a big meeting and have a conference and just talk about stuff that needs to be addressed to protect the players, but also to protect fans and younger players that want to become professional footballers.”

Asked what he thinks of footballers taking the knee before each game, Lukaku said: “I think we can take stronger positions, basically.



“Yeah, we are taking the knee, but in the end, everybody’s clapping but… sometimes after the game, you see another insult.”

Marcos Alonso sparked debates on taking the knee as he said recently that he will stop the act before the game.

Racial abuse still plagues the game we love and it has no place in this sport – or anywhere else in the world. Hopefully, social media CEO’s do something to combat this issue.
