Ghana winger Albert Adomah insists football’s “Kick It Out” campaign is still hugely important.
Boro have designated Saturday’s clash with Brighton their annual event in support of the game’s anti-racist pressure group, now in its 20th year.
And London-born Ghanaian international believes the group’s work is as relevant as ever.
“Kick It Out is still massively important in football,” he said. “You need things like that.
“It is probably more important now than ever before because the whole game is so multi-cultural at every level.
“There are so many players now in this league from all kinds of different backgrounds and nationalities and every one in the game needs to support one another.
“You need to support each other on the pitch and in the dressing room, and we do that as a team.
“At our club it is not just English players, you know.
“There are guys from all over the world here now, all nationalities, all ethnic backgrounds.
“We all have to pull together to keep any type of racism out of the game.
“That’s why all the players support Kick It Out.”
