‘Unity is strength’ – Liverpool players take a knee to show support for Black Lives Matter movement

A number of Reds stars, including Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez, tweeted a picture of the squad kneeling on the Anfield pitch

Liverpool stars took a knee around the Anfield centre-circle on Monday in a show of solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.

Senior players including Virgil van Dijk, James Milner, Joe Gomez, Andrew Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold tweeted the same photograph of the squad along with the words ‘Unity is strength’.

The tweets, which also included the hashtag #blacklivesmatter, were the latest messages of support from footballers amid the civil unrest in the United States in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd. Floyd died while in police custody in Minnesota last week, sparking significant protests and rioting across many US cities.
