Dortmund player, Jadon Sancho was shown a yellow card after revealing a ‘Justice for George Floyd’ message during  the game Paderborn.

The England winger doubled Dortmund’s lead on the hour mark when he tapped home from close range to score his 15th goal of the season.

The 20-year-old removed his jersey during his goal celebration to reveal a ‘Justice for George Floyd’ message on his undershirt.

Floyd died after a police officer kneeled on his neck following his arrest in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, has been charged with third-degree murder after videos emerged of the 44-year-old persisting with the kneeling after Mr Floyd pleaded: “I can’t breathe.”

Floyd’s death has sparked a series of protests around the globe and high-profile athletes have weighed in, including LeBron James, Serena Williams, Kylian Mbappe and Antony Joshua.

The winger has become the latest to do so with his message but the winger was sadly cautioned for his actions afterwards.

Bundesliga rules stipulate that the removal of jerseys during goal celebrations should be met with a yellow card, while all political messages are banned.
