As An Effective Anti-Racism Message, Marco Alonso Says Taking A Knee Means “Losing A Little Strength”

Posted by

Marcos Alonso believes that the anti-racism act of kneeling is losing its power, and the Chelsea defender has spoken out about his refusal to execute the pre-match ritual.

Players agreed ahead of the season to continue the protest, which began during Project Restart, in the ongoing battle against racism. However, Alonso is one of only a few players who have ceased kneeling before the game, joining Wilfried Zaha and Ivan Toney in doing so.

When requested to take a knee, Zaha called the conduct “degrading” earlier this year, and Toney said players were being “treated like puppets.”

Alonso said: ‘I am fully against racism and every type of discrimination. I just prefer to put my finger to the badge where it says no to racism, like they do in other sports and football in other countries.
