Following the defeat of his Montreal Impact team against Toronto on Friday (0-1), Thierry Henry declined to comment on the boycott that his players were defending but did not carry out, in protest. against racial injustice. After the large-scale movement to postpone matches in various American leagues on Wednesday, following the Jacob Blake affair, the Impact players preferred not to play their match, like the LA Galaxy and the Seattle Sounders .
Asked about this, Henry did not want to confirm or comment on this situation: “ I will not go into those details. If you don’t want to talk about the game, it’s going to be difficult. I still think it’s super important to talk about the match. “Defender Rudy Camacho clearly confirmed the information:” We had agreed not to play. On Thursday we had a call with players from Toronto who were supposedly campaigning for the cause and they said they wanted to play. We found that a little weird. We thought about it and we didn’t agree at all. But we felt that no one was supporting us. “
