West Bromwich Albion star James McClean has once again refused to wear a poppy on his shirt to commemorate Remembrance Day.
McClean, who made headlines last year when he wore a shirt that did not feature the commemorative design in West Brom's games against Leicester City and Manchester United, snubbed the tradition once more when his team took on Manchester City on Oct 29.
Ever consistent, he also rejected the practice while playing for Sunderland and Wigan in the past.
The 20 Premier League teams wear a special shirt during the month with a poppy on the front to commemorate the end of the First World War on November 11, 1918, Birmingham Mail reports.
"We are coming up to Remembrance Day and I won’t wear a poppy on my shirt," the 27-year-old told West Brom's official program.
"People say I am being disrespectful but don’t ask why I choose not to wear it.
"If the poppy was simply about World War One and Two victims alone, I'd wear it without a problem.
"I would wear it every day of the year if that was the thing but it doesn't, it stands for all the conflicts that Britain has been involved in. Because of the history where I come from in Derry, I cannot wear something that represents that."
