Harry Kane says Black Lives Matter kneeling campaign should go on

Tottenham Hotspur and England captain Harry Kane has said the league should not pause the fight against black discrimination.

While some influential figures in the game have said taking the kneel before Premier League games has lost spirit and meaning, Kane has offered some new perspectives to support its continuation.

"I hear people ask if we should still be doing it and we should," Kane told BBC radio.

"What people don't realise is sometimes we are watched by millions of people round the world. Of course, for the person who watches the Premier League every week, they see the same thing every week.

"But I think if you look around the world you see children watching the game for the first time, seeing us all take a knee and asking their parents and asking why we take the knee.

"It's a great chance for people to explain why and get their point across. Education is the biggest thing we can do. Adults can teach generations what it means, and what it means to be together and help each other no matter what your race,” concluded the 27-year-old striker.

Meanwhile, Spurs have some European business this week with trip to Austria to battle LASK.
