    Prem bosses met with the club skippers on Thursday afternoon to get their full backing for the change.

    In a statement the League reported: “This initiative will build on the momentum created last season when, in consultation with the players, ‘Black Lives Matter’ appeared on kits for all the games following the restart.”

    “In terms of the way he plays, Manchester City would be best suited for him, but they aren’t going to want to sign him.

    'Tottenham Hotspur is a club who he has played for before but is he the type of player that Jose Mourinho wants, I don’t think so.

    “Manchester United is probably the best club for him, but it is whether they want him despite considering his age and the salary he comes with.”

  • FROM SUNSPORT'S MARTIN LIPTON

    Prem players have agreed to dump the Black Lives Matter slogan in favour of a new anti-racism message.

    The 20 club skippers confirmed SunSport’s report that the Black Lives Matters logo worn during last season’s restarted campaign will be replaced by the sleeve badge declaring “No Room For Racism”.

    The badge will feature on all player and officials’ shirts throughout the season to “act as a constant reminder of the commitment by the Premier League, its clubs, players and PGMOL to eradicate racism”.

    Players will continue to “take a knee” in support of the anti-racism movement, a gesture inspired by the death of American George Floyd at the hands of police in Minnesota earlier this summer.

  • FATI CHANCE

    Rivaldo also wants Barcelona to be patient with young starlet Ansu Fati following interest from Man Utd.

    He told Betfair: “The youngster Ansu Fati impressed while playing very well and scoring for Spain this week, so the press is already saying he can become a regular starter at Barcelona.

    “Koeman will give him chances to shine this season, but Fati is only 17 and it's important the club don't put too much pressure on him.

    “Fati needs time and space to keep improving. He has a bright future ahead.

    “It's important for the player to get back on track as a part of the squad because he is a great player.

    “If that's not possible then both parties should make an effort to find a solution that allows Bale to leave for another club where he can get back to the pitch.”

  • HE'LL LEARN
