Jadon Sancho will face NO punishment from Bundesliga for displaying ‘Justice for George Floyd’ T-shirt

JADON SANCHO will not face further punishment for his anti-racism stance after scoring for Dortmund on Sunday.

The England star was booked after unveiling a ‘Justice for George Floyd’ T-shirt following the first of his three goals against Paderborn.

It had been claimed that the England international could be reprimanded by the German FA over his tribute to Floyd.

His message was in honour of the unarmed black man who died in police custody in Minneapolis last week after a video showed him struggling to breathe with a cop's knee on his neck.

Taking to social media after the game, Sancho said: "Solid performance from the team.

"Delighted to get my first career hat-trick, a bittersweet moment personally as there are more important things going on in the world today that we must address and help make a change.

"We shouldn't fear speaking out for what's right, we have to come together as one & fight for justice.


"We are stronger together! #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd."

Sancho was one of a number of players to display gestures of solidarity with Floyd, who died in police custody in Minnesota.

Yet Bundesliga bosses confirmed they would take “no proceedings” against them.

It came as Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku, the subject of racist abuse in a Serie A game last year, tweeted his support.

The Belgian wrote: “Dear black women, I adore you! Thank you for holding it down for us through all the madness you have to go through.

“Dear black men, I salute you! Many people trying to take us down but we still stand tall.

“Keep marching peacefully and keep spraying the message.

“Black lives matter. F*** racism.”
