Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has come out to urge Premier League clubs to continue sending a strong anti-discrimination message despite the decision to stop taking a knee before every match. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, the message of all kinds of races being welcome to football clubs and industries all across the globe should not end because racism must be kicked out of the sport completely.
Arteta added that the amazing transfer window Arsenal has had this summer shows that his team will be competitive this season.
His words, “That hopefully it is equally productive and we should still send a very important message that as a club we want to obviously express that equality is a massive thing for us, that everybody is welcome in our football club, in our industry hopefully and we need to maintain to be strong on that message.”
On Arsenal, “We are really active as you can see with coming ins and outs, everything is still open,”
“It is a long window. A lot has happened.”
“It is incredible how much business the clubs has already done across the Premier League. And it shows how competitive it will be this season. It is not going to stop, that. Players are going to have the needs to leave, some others to move and everything is open still.”
