Spanish Soccer Team Kneels For the First Minute of Game Play in Protest (VIDEO)

The players from the Real Jaén team drop to their knees for the first minute of their game last Sunday against Lucena in a protest against the club owner Mr. Carlos Sánchez, and the fact that he hasn’t paid them four months worth of salaries.

Their opponents, a bit confused, respected the protest, and didn’t take advantage of the situation to score, instead passing the ball among them.

Fans cheered, chanted and displayed signs saying “Carlos Sánchez, go away” and “No more lies.”
