Leicester City soccer players Hamza Choudhury and Wesley Fofana showed support for the Palestinians after winning England’s FA Cup final on Saturday.
English midfielder Choudhury and French defender Fofana were seen holding a Palestinian flag.
Choudhury had the flagged draped over his shoulders as he collected his winner’s medal after beating Chelsea 1-0.
Tens of thousands of protesters marched in support of Palestinians on Saturday in major European cities including London, Berlin, Madrid and Paris, as the worst violence in years raged between Israel and terror groups in Gaza.A social media post from Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny also showing his support for the Palestinian people has been hit by a backlash from Jewish fans.
“As with any employees of Arsenal, our players are entitled to express their views on their own platforms,” the club told Sky Sports News.
