Watford have announced its players will no longer be taking the knee before kick-off due to ‘confusion over its continued relevance’.

 

The North London side released a statement explaining how the player’s leadership team came to the conclusion that there are better ways to show support for anti-discriminatory activities.

Club Ambassador Luther Blissett OBE said: ‘Watford FC has a very long history as a club that does not tolerate discrimination and, as a trailblazer in this respect, I felt that we needed to show support in a way that anyone in the stadium can understand and get behind.

 

‘Fans literally can ‘stand with us’ in this respect! This is a decision the Former Players Club fully supports.
