ANTHONY MODESTE is the latest Bundesliga star to pay tribute to George Floyd after finding the back of the net.
The former Blackburn man scored Cologne’s second in their 4-2 home defeat to RB Leipzig on Monday night.
And he poignantly celebrated by showing solidarity to Floyd who was murdered by a Minneapolis police officer last week.
Modeste turned the palm of his hand to the camera while keeping his other hand turned the other way.
It was a message to support the ‘Black Lives Matter’ anti-racism movement sweeping across America.
White policeman Derek Chauvin kept his knee on Floyd’s neck for almost nine minutes after being arrested on suspicion of using a counterfeit $20 bill.
It has sparked global outrage with protests and violence spreading across US States.
He took off his t-shirt to a message that read: “Justice for George Floyd.”
Schalke midfielder Weston McKennie donned a ‘Justice For George’ armband in his side’s 1-0 win over Werder Bremen.
Marcus Rashford, Dina Asher-Smith and Lewis Hamilton were among other black British sports stars to make similar statements.
Borussia Monchengladbach ace Marcus Thuram took a knee after scoring the first of his two goals in a 4-1 win over Union Berlin.
Thuram, 22, dropped to one knee in a symbolic gesture to support the Black Lives Matter movement.
Sancho’s team-mate Achraf Hakimi revealed his own tribute shirt by lifting his top to reveal the same message after he grabbed Dortmund’s fourth goal in the 85th minute.
