Marland Yarde releases statement after teammate recieves death threats

Marland Yarde has shockingly revealed that some of his Sale Sharks teammates have received death threats after deciding against taking the knee.

The 28-year-old, who did show his support the Black Lives Matter movement, has slammed some fans behaviour after a number of his teammates chose not to.

“I stand 100% for the Black Lives Matter movement and whole heartedly believe in the importance of highlighting the continuous battle that we face in society everyday and the need for a change,” wrote Yarde on Twitter.

“I have to also stand against death threats against my teammates which is totally unacceptable.

“This behaviour will not make the world a better place. We are united we are a team!!”
