"We, the Borussia Dortmund team, are fully behind the Black Lives Matter movement. We do not accept racism of any kind and will continue to work to make the world a better and more tolerant place."

The Borussia Dortmund team showed their support for the "Black Lives Matter" movement by taking a knee together on the training pitch. By performing this action, the players were condemning racism and showing solidarity with the global protests that have followed the death of American citizen George Floyd through police brutality. Jadon Sancho and Achraf Hakimi had previously displayed a message that read "Justice for George Floyd" during the Paderborn match.
