And Manchester United team-mates Pogba and Rashford have now joined calls for change.

Pogba, 27, said: “I felt anger, pity, hatred, indignation, pain, sadness.

“Sadness for George and all black people who suffer racism every day.

“Whether in football, at work, at school, anywhere!

“This has to stop, once and for all. Not tomorrow or the next day, today!

“Violent racism can no longer be tolerated. I can’t tolerate. I won’t tolerate. We won’t tolerate.

“Racism is ignorance. Love is intelligence.”

Striker Rashford, 22, added: “I’ve been trying to process what is going on in the world.

“At a time I’ve been asking people to come together, work together and be united, we appear more divided than ever.

“People are hurting and need answers. Black lives matter. Black culture matters. Black communities matter. We matter.”

Jadon Sancho could be in hot water for showing a "Justice for George Floyd" T-shirt after scoring in Borussia Dortmund’s 6-1 win over Paderborn.

The German FA will assess if he broke rules on displaying slogans.
