Wilfred Zaha refuse to take the knee while Crystal Palace hosted West Brom

Share This
Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has become the first Premier League player to stop taking the knee before the game kick off. 
The 28-year-old recently returned from injury for Crystal against West Brom as he started the game at Selhurst Park on Saturday. 

Although, while he was injured, he had revealed his intention to stay on his feet when a knee was taken on his return to action.
A statement from Zaha explaining his actions read: “My decision to stand at kick-off has been public knowledge for a couple of weeks.

“There is no right or wrong decision, but I feel kneeling has just become a part of the pre-match routine and whether we kneel or stand, some of us continue to receive abuse..

“I know there is a lot of work being done behind the scenes at the Premier League and other authorities to make change, and I fully respect that, and everyone involved.

“I also fully respect my team-mates and players at other clubs who continue to take the knee.

“As a society, I feel we should be encouraging better education in schools, and social media companies should be taking stronger action against people who abuse others online - not just footballers.”

Crystal Palace recorded a narrow 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion after Milivojevic scored the only goal from the penalty spot.
