Bundesliga Stars Show Solidarity Over the Death of George Floyd

Protests are ongoing across the United States ascribable to the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota. As a result, countless people across social media have voiced their frustrations and shown their solidarity towards reform.

 

Soccer players in Germany are the latest athletes to use their platforms to broadcast their solidarity and plead for justice. Shown below is Borussia Monchengladbach attacker Marcus Thuram taking a knee after scoring the team’s second goal en route to a 4-1 win that saw the Frenchman score a brace (two goals). The Monchengladbach twitter account shared a photo of him taking a knee with the caption “no explanation needed” that all but confirmed the celebration was in reference to George Floyd’s murder.

In the Bundesliga’s last match of the day, English midfielder Jadon Sancho was able to double Dortmund’s lead to 2-0 and celebrated by taking off his jersey to reveal an undershirt that read “Justice for George Floyd”. Sancho went on to score his first career hat trick (three goals).


In the same Borussia Dortmund game, Moroccan starlet Achraf Hakimi netted in a goal and dawned a similar celebration to Jadon Sancho with the message “Justice for George Floyd” also written on his undershirt.

Protests have begun in European Countries like Germany and England at the US Embassies for the same demands US protesters are pleading for. 

 

Change.
