We’re with you: Liverpool show ‘unity is strength’ by taking knee at Anfield

LIVERPOOL players took a knee around the centre circle at Anfield yesterday in a gesture of support following the death of George Floyd in America.

Players such as Virgil van Dijk and Trent Alexander-Arnold tweeted the picture (above) with the caption: ‘Unity is strength #BlackLivesMatter.’

The champions elect were training at their home ground ahead of the return to Premier League action this month.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba said he felt ‘anger, pity, hatred, indignation, pain and sadness’ in a passionate Instagram post. He added: ‘Sadness for George and for all black people who suffer from racism EVERY DAY! This has to stop, once and for all.’
