Burnley captain says he’s “ashamed and embarrassed” about ‘White Lives Matter’ banner flown over Etihad Stadium

Burnley also issued a strongly worded statement before the end of the game

Burnley captain Ben Mee says he’s “ashamed and embarrassed” that a ‘White Lives Matter’ banner was flown over the Etihad Stadium before last night’s 5-0 defeat to Manchester City in the Premier League.

Burnley also issued a strongly worded statement before the end of the game, vowing to issue lifetime bans to those responsible for the incident.

It occurred just moments after all players had taken a knee in support of the Black Lives Matter movement at kick-off.
