Premier League players should continue taking a knee, says Tottenham star Kane


Tottenham 2020-21

Tottenham star Harry Kane has called on Premier League players to continue taking a knee before matches.

After protests over George Floyd's death in police custody, the Premier League began each match with every player and official kneeling on the pitch – a practice that has continued inthe 2020-21 season.

Whilesome have said that continuing to kneel has diluted the message, Kane believes it is still important for him and his fellow players to kneel prior to every game.

“I think we are a huge platform to share our voices across the world, to be honest," Kane toldNihal Arthanayake onBBC Radio 5 Live."Obviouslywe have done a lot with Black Lives Matter and taking the knee before games. I hear people talking about taking the knee and whether we should still be doing it, and for me I think we should.

“What people don’t realise sometimes is we are watched by millions of people around the world, and of course for the person who watches the Premier League every week, they see the same thing every week, but I think if you look round the world, you see children watching the game for the first time, seeing us all take a knee and asking their parents asking why we take the knee.

"I think it’s a great chance for people to explain why and get their point across. I think education is the biggest thing we can do - adults can teach generations what it means, and what itmeans to be together and help each other, no matter what your race.”

Kane has also lauded the work done by his England team-matesMarcus Rashford and Raheem Sterling, who have both been vocal in the fightagainst racism and childhood hunger.

“I think what Marcus and Raheem have done has been incredible and you see a lot of the work players do for communities and charities, I know first-hand players are doing an awful lot," Kane said.
