As a sign against the recent racist incidents at football stadiums, many well-known Premier League players "fast" on Good Friday in a special way.
The appeal of the British players' union, PFA, which urged players worldwide to stop posting comments or tweeting on their social networks on Friday, was well received.
Among the participants is also the ÖFB legionnaire, Marko Arnautovic. Stars like Marcus Rashford, Giorgio Chiellini and Georginho Wijnaldum also posted the slogan "Enough" on a red background and stated in their profiles: "We are against racist abuse and we recognize that our platforms are responsible and we use our voice to avoid racist abuse: "
In recent months, there have been a number of racist incidents against players in the UK and internationally. Most recently, England was shocked by incidents in the European Qualifying Championship against Montenegro when team-mate Danny Rose was insulted by spectators. Raheem Sterling also raised allegations of racism against fans.
