Morocco international Achraf Hakimi celebrated his goal for Dortmund by paying tribute to George Floyd.
Achraf Hakimi is among several African sportsmen to show support for the late African-American George Floyd after the Morocco international scored in Borussia Dortmund’s 6-1 thrashing of Paderborn.
The United States has seen a number of protests in major cities across the country since Floyd, an unarmed black man, died while being restrained by white Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin on 25 May.
Hakimi demonstrated his support on Sunday by crossing his fists in the air in a sign for justice after scoring in the 84th minute, while also lifting his jersey to reveal ‘Justice for George Floyd’ handwritten on his vest.
The right-back, who is on loan at Dortmund from Real Madrid, also tweeted to say: ‘Together we will defeat racism! Justice!’ (BBC)
