Bayern defender Jerome Boateng called on the players to support the Black Lives Matter movement in the Champions League by kneeling.
`I think it would be a powerful message. Especially if you do it in the final, because the whole world will be watching this match. I think it`s important that you keep playing other sports. I hope that representatives of tournaments that stillthey have not resumed, they will also join us. We discussed the issue of racism with teammates Leon Gorecka and Joshua Kimih.
They asked me how to support me, what happened to me when I was little, what it was like to face racism. I managed to tell them my story, to tell them about my experiences. There are situations when it is really difficult to help, but you can always do it. Of course, when a crowd goes against one and no one is around, then you don`t know how it will end, but if there is someone nearby, he can call the police, call for help, whatever, because it can helpto save someone who will be in danger, `Jerome Boateng told The Independent.
