The game in Spain was suspended for three months due to the virus, but in the meantime, the equality movement came to the fore after protests in the United States were triggered after the death of George Floyd.
Toni Kroos supports the BLM movement
Real Madrid star Toni Kroos believes that the protests of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) will be visible as LaLiga restarts after the coronavirus lockdown. The game in Spain was suspended for three months due to the virus, but in the meantime, the equality movement came to the fore after protests in the United States were triggered after the death of George Floyd. Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, Marcus Thuram from Borussia Monchengladbach, and Weston McKennie from Schalke made loud protests in the Bundesliga after the case, while PSG’s Kylian Mbappe was one of those to take to social media to express his support for the movement. Kroos expects to see similar gestures during the weekend, as professional football in Spain returns behind closed doors.
People must find a solution to stop racism
“I imagine that the players in Spain will want to show solidarity with it,” he told reporters. It cannot be ruled out and indeed not condemned. “It is unbelievable that such actions are still taking place. But it’s good that a rethinking is taking place. I hope we can help those who have suffered from it to some extent”. Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling also spoke about this. “I know that this may sound a little cheerful, but the only disease now is the racism we are fighting,” Sterling told reporters. “This is the most important thing at this point because it’s what has been happening for years and years. Just like a pandemic, we want to find a solution to stop it.”
The protesters are trying to find a solution and a way to stop the injustice that they see. While they are doing it peacefully and safely, without harming anyone or rushing into any stores. Professional Football returned to Spain on Thursday in the Seville derby. With hosts Sevilla claiming a 2-0 victory over Real Betis. This side defeated Madrid just before the unscheduled suspension of the game, at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan. Kroos will seek to act as Real Madrid host Eibar on Sunday at Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano, trying to close the two-point gap to leaders Barcelona at the summit of LaLiga with 11 games remaining.
