UEFA President, Aleksander Ceferin, has told players and fans what will happen if they demand justice for late George Floyd in UEFA’s macthes, Champions League and Europa League.
Last weekend, Dortmund winger, Jadon Sancho, unveiled his interest to stop racism after he scored by showing a message under his shirt expressing solidarity with George Floyd.
“Football is a sport which encourages tolerance, inclusion and justice,” Ceferin was quoted by Daily Star as saying.
“These are the same values being espoused by those showing solidarity to George Floyd.
“If a player in our competitions were to display a message or act symbolically to ask for equality for human beings the circumstances around the event should be taken into account in line with UEFA’s zero-tolerance against racism.”
FIFA at the other end has told football competition organizers to apply ‘common sense’ and consider not sanctioning players demanding justice for Floyd, during games.
