The Chelsea FC team came together yesterday in solidarity to support the anti-racism movement.
After George Floyd – an African-American man – was killed by a police officer in Minneapolis on 25th May, sparks of wrath rose around the nation and the world. Several footballers and clubs showed their support and Chelsea Football Club paid a tribute by taking a stand against racism, sending out the message to all their fans and the world – ‘Enough is Enough’.
This is their contribution to the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement which rose to new heights after the incident, and Chelsea has certainly sent out a very powerful message. Several Chelsea players have faced outright racism in the past – the likes of Tammy Abraham, Reece James, Didier Drogba, Jimmy Floyd Hasseilbank, Callum Hudson-Odoi – among so many more, and the Blues have really had enough now.
Before they started their training on Tuesday, they came down on their knee and formed the letter H – which stands for Humans.
