Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has spoken out in support of the Black Lives Matter campaign, as protests continue in the United States following the death of George Floyd.
George Floyd died while in police custody in Minnesota last week, sparking demonstrations in many cities across the US.
On Sunday, Rashford’s England team-mate Jadon Sancho celebrated the first of his three goals against SC Paderborn by revealing a t-shirt with a message ‘’Justice for George Floyd’’.
Rashford took to twitter and Facebook to show his backing for The Black Lives Matter campaign.
‘’I know you guys haven’t heard from me in a few days,’’ He wrote.
‘’I’ve been trying to process what is going on in the world. At a time where I’ve been asking people to come together, work together and be united, we appear to be more divided than ever.
‘’People are hurting and we need answers. Black lives matter. Black culture matters. Black communities matter. We matter.’’
Borussia Monchengladbach forward Marcus Thuram took a knee after scoring against Union Berlin in the German Bundesliga on Sunday.
Gladbach head coach Marco Rose lauded Thuram for his action, saying he had ‘’set a good example against racism.’’
