Crystal Pelas forward and leader Wilfried Zaha has said he will not kneel and support the Black Lives Matter movement.

Reports about it Goal.

“I’ve already said that I think kneeling is stupid. As a child, my parents explained to me that I should be proud of my skin color no matter the circumstances. I think we should stand. I’m not going to get on my knees and wear clothes with the words Black Lives Matter on back, because it’s like a target, “- surprised Zaha’s statement.

The 28-year-old Ivorian specified why he does not want to support the Black Lives Matter movement.

“We isolate ourselves. We try to say that we are equal, but we isolate ourselves with all these things that still don’t work. I think we have to be full-grown, and I’m not going to talk about racism and other things for the sake of a tick. Until there is no action, do not even tell me about it, “- said the striker of the London club.
