A brace and symbolic exultation for the victim of Minneapolis by the son of the former champion of Parma and Juve
The gesture for Floyd
Thuram was the protagonist of the match for the brace, but also for the symbolic gesture in protest for the death of George Floyd, in Minneapolis, suffocated by the knee on the neck by a policeman. The episode is sparking violent protests in the United States. The 22-year-old son of Lilian, a former Parma and Juve champion, knelt on the ground with his head lowered after the second of his two goals scored at the Union.
The gesture recalls the protest of the American football player, Colin Kaepernick, who in 2016 knelt in the US anthem in protest against the violence suffered by African Americans, and was then followed by many famous athletes from the main American sports. In the standings, Borussia is confirmed in third place with 56 points on a par with Bayer Leverkusen. Union Berlin +4 on the relegation zone.
