Marcus Thuram tribute to George Floyd (Video)

Borussia Monchengladbach striker Marcus Thuram took a knee for his celebration after he scored against Union Berlin on Sunday.

Thuram scored the second to put Union Berlin 2-0 up just before the end of the first half.

Thuram’s celebration is almost certainly related to protests which have emerged in America as a result of the d’eath of George Floyd after he was restrained by a police officer, who has since been charged over his d’eath.

Taking a knee became a widespread symbol of protest in response to police b’rutality against minorities when NFL star Colin Kaepernick started assuming the position during the national anthem.
