(Video) United target Sancho scores hat-trick against Paderborn; unveils ‘Justice for George Floyd’ shirt

The murder of George Floyd has made headlines around the world, and there’s been a number of Bundesliga stars showing their support this weekend.

George Floyd was killed by a Minneapolis police officer on Monday. The officer in question knelt on the 46-year-old’s neck for 8-minutes and 46 seconds, as per BBC News, all while the victim pleaded for help.

Borussia Mönchengladbach striker Marcus Thurau took to his knee after scoring his side’s second goal against Union Berlin today.

Manchester United target (via MEN) and England international Jadon Sancho has followed suit.

The Borussia Dortmund winger unveiled a t-shirt in support of George Floyd following his first of three goals against Paderborn, as seen below courtesy of BT Sport:

Dortmund penalised Paderborn for losing position in their own half as Norwegian striker Erling Haaland drove forward and found Sancho inside the box for a tap-in.

His second came from an attack down the same flank but Sancho took a touch and carefully guided the ball past several defenders and the Paderborn goalkeeper.

His third came at the very end – marking exactly the return he wanted to the BVB starting line-up.

Dortmund ended up winning the game 6-1 and it was Sancho’s first start since the return of the Bundesliga.
