Players to stop taking the knee from 2022/2023 season
According to the Daily Mail, Premier League players want to stop taking the knee before every fixture.
This was on the agenda as the 20 club captains met on Thursday.
They feel the gesture has lost its gravitas and discussed how to move forward, as the 2022/2023 campaign kicks off this Friday.

It could be reserved for televised matches, thereby ensuring the gesture is seen weekly by millions worldwide, or decided on a game-by-game basis between club representatives in the days leading up to a fixture.
