Premier League bosses to talk to Lukaku over taking the knee and fight against racism

The Premier League officials want to speak with Romelu Lukaku on strengthening the fight against racism.

This comes after the Belgian striker questioned whether taking the knee before games is having a strong enough impact on eliminating racism.

Recently, Lukaku told CNN: “Yes, we are taking the knee, but in the end, everybody’s clapping but… sometimes after the game, you see another insult.

“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, and we should just sit around the table and have a big meeting about it.”

The PL chiefs have decided they’ll approach Chelsea or club captain Cesar Azpilicueta about talking to Lukaku about this matter.

They want to discuss his views and learn how to tackle inequality better, with the FA having already approached the striker about the matter.
