1 May 2021 Ramadan and Football

BBC Sports reports, “Leicester City defender Wesley Fofana has thanked the Premier League, Crystal Palace and keeper Vicente Guaita for allowing him to break his Ramadan fast during the game against the Eagles. During Ramadan many Muslims abstain from food and drink in daylight hours.Eagles keeper Guaita waited to take a goal-kick just after the half-hour mark in the evening game against the Foxes. The pause in play allowed Fofana to take in some liquids on the touchline before returning to play. The short delay for when there was a natural break in play was agreed in the captain’s meeting prior to the game and Fofana said “that’s what makes football wonderful” in a social media post.” click here.
