Bundesliga players including Jadon Sancho who staged protests during matches following the death of black American man George Floyd will not be punished, the German Football Federation said on Wednesday.

In a statement, the DFB said "no action" would be taken against Borussia Dortmund players Sancho and Achraf Hakimi, Schalke's US midfielder Weston McKennie and Borussia Moenchengladbach's French forward Marcus Thuram for "their symbols of solidarity".

"This line will also be taken should further players make demonstrations on racism and the death of Floyd over the course of upcoming matchdays," the DFB added.

After scoring in Dortmund's win at Paderborn on Sunday, England winger Sancho lifted his shirt to reveal the message "Justice for George Floyd". He was booked, but for lifting his shirt over his head rather than for the message.

Hakimi and McKennie expressed similar calls for justice, while Frenchman Thuram, the son of World Cup winner Lilian Thuram, took a knee after scoring for Gladbach in memory of Floyd, echoing similar protests against police brutality started by NFL player Colin Kaepernick in 2016.

"I welcome the far-sighted decision from the DFB's control body and am very pleased with it," said DFB chief Fritz Keller.

"The DFB is opposed to all forms of racism, discrimination and violence, and stands for tolerance, openness and diversity."
