The entire Liverpool squad knelt in Anfield's centre circle ahead of a training session on Monday in a powerful show of support for the Black Lives Matter movement.

Following the death of George Floyd in the United States, and the subsequent global reaction, the Reds players wanted to show solidarity.

It was a moment initiated by the playing squad, who then subsequently took to their own individual social media accounts to post the image with the caption: “Unity is strength. #BlackLivesMatter”.
