Schalke 04’s U.S.-born player wears “Justice for George’’ armband

Schalke 04’s Weston McKennie showed support on Saturday for protests in the U.S., sparked by the death of an unarmed black man at the hands of a white police officer in Minneapolis.

The 21-year-old US-born McKennie wore an armband with the message “Justice for George” during Saturday’s 1-0 Bundesliga defeat at home to Werder Bremen.

A photo of McKennie wearing the armband was published by Schalke 04’s official account for the US, with the message “#JusticeForGeorge.”

Various American sports stars had previously shown support for the protesters after the death of 46-year-old George Floyd at the hands of the police this week.
