Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has told Chelsea player Marcos Alonso that players taking the knee before matches is still making a difference in the fight against racism.

The Premier League made the gesture after George Floyd, a black American man, was murdered by a police officer kneeling on his throat in May 2020.

However, several players including Alonso have stopped kneeling as they believe it’s not having the desired impact but Henderson disagrees.

“Everybody’s entitled to do what they will feel comfortable doing,” Henderson told GQ.

“I know Marcos is against any form of racism, so we’re all fighting for the same thing here and we all have the same message.

“But, for myself and the players at Liverpool, I think we are still in favour of it and that it is still having an impact.”
