Sancho and Thuram join Protests against the Floyd death in police custody

Jadon Sancho, the English forward player, also joined the global protests against racism on Sunday, like other sports stars. These protests held after the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man during the custody of Minneapolis police. Sancho revealed a T-Shirt with handwritten words “Justice for George Floyd” after scoring a goal for Borussia Dortmund while playing against Paderborn.

Earlier, Marcus Thuram, a French footballer, took a knee after scoring a goal for Borussia Mönchengladbach. He scored a hat-trick as Dortmund thrashed Paderborn 6-1, but the match referee showed him a yellow card for his gesture to join the protest supporting George Floyd.

Sancho expressed his pleasure on Instagram after scoring his first hat trick

The French footballer wrote on Instagram and showed his happiness to score his career first hat trick. A sentimental as well as a bitter moment for him as other important things are happening in the world today that everyone must address and play his role in making a change.

Everybody should freely back the right by speaking openly and come together as one and fight for justice of brutal murder. He also wrote hashtag Justice for George Floyd. Floyd died in police custody when a Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, kneeled on his neck brutally for around nine minutes to pin him down. That police officer since charged with Floyd’s murder and dismissed from his designation.
