Leeds United forward Tyler Roberts has blasted Millwall fans for their booing response to players taking the knee on Saturday.
Millwall usually aren’t too far from controversy, and the world of football couldn’t believe what they were seeing from the Den yesterday.
Leeds, other clubs and players like Roberts have committed to the Black Lives Matter movement, with Kalvin Phillips also reacting to the ludicrous incident.
Roberts reacted to the clip shared by Sky Sports on his personal Instagram account, simply sharing his disgust in a one-word reply.
“Shameful,” he wrote.
We still shouldn’t be talking about this in 2020, and the fact we are is a complete disgrace.
Fans have waited for nearly a year to get back into grounds, and if this is how they react, they shouldn’t be allowed back in by their clubs.
Controversial incidents like this one could affect other clubs campaigning to get their fans back into the stadiums.
Leeds will be hoping to have their fans back cheering on their side in the right manner in the clash against Burnley at the end of this month.
Sky Sports shared that Manchester United are plotting the return of fans for the clash against the Whites on the 20th of December.
With Yorkshire and Lancashire having the same R-rate, hopefully, the government will sanction both areas to allow fans back into sporting arenas sooner rather than later.
Only 2000 fans are allowed in stadiums, and that is something that will make it easier to hand out banning orders, and hopefully, those giving the sport a bad name will be kept away for good.
