I don’t see an issue in Mings pointing out that Patel has room to talk when she is now condemning racism after ignoring why they were trying to bring racism and the need to stop it to light. For them, she dismissed the need to do something against racism, but is now joining in the condemnation. For someone who doesn’t like gesture politics, Patel loves making gestured comments. Is the knee succeeding? Probably not, but that’s partly because people like Patel aren’t doing anything to stop it.
As for the Bulgaria game, the idiots got ejected, many players would have seen forfeiting as a way of letting the racists win. They might not trust UEFA to not reward Bulgaria for an outcome in response to refusal to play. Besides, I don’t see how this nullifies any anti-racist gestures from players.
