Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has called for the end to racism in the world following the death of an unarmed black man George Floyd killed in Minneapolis, United States last week after white police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for more than eight minutes.

Chelsea became the latest Premier League club to throw their support behind the Black Lives Matter movement on Tuesday.

Chelsea players took the knee during a training session at Cobham in the formation of H for ‘human’.

Kepa explained the motivation of the Chelsea players, tweeting:  “Enough is enough. We are all HUMANS. Together we are stronger. #BlackLivesMatter.”

Meanwhile, chairman of anti-racism organisation Kick It Out, Sanjay Bhandari, has called on every Premier League player to take a knee in the wake of Floyd’s killing in the USA, saying: “I wonder if that’s the thing I would encourage if players want to protest.

“If you score a goal and take a knee could everyone do that? Not just the black players. The white players too – everyone.

“Every player should do it. It should be teams doing it. You saw the Erling Haaland celebration after the first game back where all the Borussia Dortmund players did the social-distancing celebration. They could all take a knee.

“Racism’s not about black players or brown fans. It’s about all of us. Racism corrodes society and we’re all hurt by it. Everyone should want to demonstrate their solidarity and disgust.”
