Burnley condemn ‘White Lives Matter’ banner flown over Manchester City match

Burnley have actually stated they “strongly” condemn those accountable for flying a “White Lives Matter Burnley” banner over their Premier League match with Manchester City.

The football club branded the banner “offensive” after it was hauled by an airplane above the Ethiad Arena on Monday night.

“We wish to make it clear that those responsible are not welcome at Turf Moor,” the club stated.

“This, in no way, represents what Burnley Football Club stands for and we will work fully with the authorities to identify those responsible and issue lifetime bans.”

It added: “We apologise unreservedly to the Premier League, to Manchester City and to all those helping to promote Black Lives Matter.”

The banner remained in contrast to the shows of unity that have actually happened considering that the Premier League resumed, with all players using “Black Lives Matter” on their t-shirts and taking a knee prior to kick-off.
