    <p>Sept 21 (Reuters) – Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso has stopped taking the knee before matches this season because the anti-racism gesture is “losing a bit of strength”, 언브로큰 the 30-year-old said.</p> <p>Players and 언브로큰 staff have been taking a knee prior to kickoff since the league returned to action in June last year to show their support for the Black Lives Matter movement.</p> <p>Alonso said he has decided to stand 언브로큰 while other players kneel and 언브로큰 will instead point to the “No Room For Racism” badge on the sleeve of his kit to highlight the issue.</p> <p>”I prefer to do it this way and, of course, to say very clearly that I am against racism and I respect everybody,” Alonso said after Sunday’s 3-0 Premier League win website at Tottenham Hotspur.</p> <p>”I think it’s losing a bit of strength the other way, so I just prefer to do it this way.”</p> <p>Chelsea are joint top of the table after five matches.
