Jadon Sancho backs the campaign “Justice for George Floyd” after the Dortmund victory
Borussia Dortmund star, Jadon Sancho, shunned Sunday celebrating his first goal against Paderborn in the Bundesliga by making a statement last week by a US police officer about the killing of an American, George Floyd.
Sancho found the net to put Dortmund 2-0 in front of the Benteler Arena against Paderborn and raced to the corner flag before removing his shirt to reveal a message on his base layer read: “Justice for George Floyd.”
The 20-year-old was later shown a yellow card for removing his shirt.
The England international scored a hat-trick against Paderborn.
Sancho made his first appearance for Dortmund, three weeks ago after the German Bundesliga resumed post-COVID-19.
His teammates, Thorgan Hazard, Achraf Hakimi and Marcel Schmelzer also scored to ensure the 6-1 host was defeated by Dortmund.
Recently, Sancho has been linked with a move to the transfer window this summer for Premier League giants, Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool.
