Defender Mathias Zanka is one of the Huddersfield Town players that has backed Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign this weekend.
The Rainbow Laces campaign has been highlighted across the Premier League this weekend with the aim of supporting LGBT people within sport.
Mathias was a great advocate of a similar campaign at his previous club FC København and explained why he will be wearing the Rainbow Laces against Manchester City.
“I think it’s pretty straight forward,” said the 27 year-old.
“I believe that football is for everyone and I’m against every form of discrimination; it’s as simple as that.
“The LGBT community is a big part of society and should be a big part of football as well.”
