Marcos Alonso has chosen another approach against racism . Instead of kneeling before the kick-off ball due to the belief that it could be dangerous, including affecting playing on the field.
Alonso is one of the few who denied kneeling against racism in the English Premier League campaign, joining Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha and Brentford’s Ivan Tony. That the Spaniard fears putting weight on his knee and sitting on it will lead to injury.
Recently, he opened up about the matter that although he did not kneel like others. But it supports the campaign.
“I am completely against racism. and I am against all forms of discrimination.”
“Personally, I would like to point a finger at the logo that says ‘Not racist’ like they do in other sports and in football matches of other countries I’d rather do it this way. And of course I want to make it clear that I am against racism and respect everyone.”
“I just want to do this more. it’s my way Sometimes I think that kneeling will cause the knee to lose a bit of strength. So will do it with a different approach. Please choose to do this And it shows that I fully support the fight against racism.
“Now I choose to point to the sleeve. And it’s what I’m going to do.”
“Our teammates have no problem. We talk about it. are the same family.”
“I have a good relationship with everyone. If you talk about one thing with someone I will tell other people the same way and I think there should be no problem.”
For Zaha’s reasoning, similar to Alonso, is to avoid injury, while Tony doesn’t want to be a puppet for authority rather than directly solving problems. According to ufabet
