Premier League captains are in talks over the future of the pre-match anti-racism gesture of taking a knee before the new season begins on Friday.
According to reports, the captains have already held one meeting on the subject without reaching a resolution.
Reports also says another meeting will take place when they have consulted with their team-mates.
Players have been taking a knee before kick-off since the league restarted in June 2020 following the initial shutdown due to the Covid pandemic.
However, Crystal Palace forward, Wilfried Zaha stopped in February 2021, saying it doesn’t matter if they kneel or stand.
