Gravina: “Free team according to conscience”

Bonucci, the only one to have talked about it a few days ago

at the press conference, it was clear: “There is no UEFA directive.” And he is among those left standing. But it doesn’t have to feel like a sentence. The FIGC president Gabriele Gravina, the day after qualifying for the round of 16, he enters the subject to reiterate «that the Football Federation is against all forms of racism, but that the team is free to behave according to conscience. It is not a subject for which a federal line can be established. We talked to the team before the game because we knew the Welsh would get down on their knees and we agreed that everyone would be free to follow their own instincts and feelings. And so it will also be in the continuation of the tournament. We do not oblige anyone, it would not be fair ».

Racism and freedom of choice

Wales at Bale’s score went down compact. The Black Lives Matter in sport in England it has already become a habit. This is not the case with us. Someone may not have knelt by choice, but certainly not because they do not share the fight against racism.
