Regardless of who wins, we should keep in mind the words of Rudiger’s article. There is no room for racism and abuse in this game. The players are humans, they’ve worked their butts off to reach the #UCLFinal. Be critical, respectfully.
If you have not read the article yet, please do so. It’s really powerful, and if you’re one of the people who has abused players in the past, this article could change your outlook.
Silva🗣️: "A tuberculosis specialist recommended I go walking for half an hour in the mornings until I felt tired. But I couldn’t do it for five minutes. I felt exhausted, but I didn’t stop. Little by little, I improved. I started jogging. Then, after three months, I was healed."
Silva🗣️: "I believe that for any professional to reach their goals, sacrifice is part of their daily lives. Football always brings us a lot of emotions. When you do something you love, with all the necessary sacrifices, this gift undoubtedly has a much greater meaning.’
