Jadon Sancho backs “Justice for George Floyd” campaign after scoring in Dortmund’s win



Borussia Dortmund star, Jadon Sancho, on Sunday shunned celebrating his first goal against Paderborn in the Bundesliga by making a statement over the killing of an American, George Floyd, by a police officer in the United States last week.

Sancho found the net to put Dortmund 2-0 in front against Paderborn at the Benteler Arena and ran to the corner flag before removing his shirt to disclose a message on his base layer that read: “Justice for George Floyd.”

The 20-year-old was later shown a second yellow card for removing his shirt.

The England international scored a hat-trick against Paderborn.

Sancho was making his first start for Dortmund since the German Bundesliga resumed post-COVID-19 three weeks ago.

His teammates, Thorgan Hazard, Achraf Hakimi, and Marcel Schmelzer also scored to ensure Dortmund defeated the host 6-1.

Sancho has recently been linked with a move to Premier League giants, Chelsea, Manchester United, and Liverpool this summer’s transfer window.
