On The Continent: Numerous Bundesliga protests and football returns to Portugal

We’ve got all your continental queries covered on today's episode of On The Continent, as Luke Moore and Andy Brassell guide you through the biggest stories in European football.


We begin with the protests by the likes of Jadon Sancho, Marcus Thuram and Achraf Hakimi around the killing of George Floyd and the wider Black Lives Matter movement. As football’s governing bodies vocalise their support for the protests, we wonder whether this is a tipping point for players’ social activism and football publicising wider social issues.


There’s also plenty of on-pitch action to get stuck into, as Portugal’s Primeira Liga has started up again! We discuss league leaders Porto’s transfer plans and their shock loss to Famalicão, as well as the latest updates from Spain and Italy regarding their return.
