LIVERPOOL'S FIRST TRAINING SESSION HALTED AS EVERY PLAYER TAKE A KNEE AND SHOW SOLIDARITY WITH BLACKS

Liverpool squad made a powerful gesture in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement during their training session at Anfield on Monday.

Each of the players took a knee around the centre circle, facing the camera higher up in the stand.

A point was made of the stars wearing different versions of the club kits with some decked out in red, others in the away black shirt and a handful wearing training gear.  

It was the first training session Jurgen Klopp’s side have had at Anfield as a team since the season was suspended due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and they chose to stop the session to make a powerful statement. 

They are the first Premier League side to offer up a collective act of support for the Black Lives Matter movement but a number of high profile individuals have had their say since the death of George Floyd due to police brutality this week.
