Marcus Rashford and other Man United players were subjected to vile racist abuse after the Europa League final.


Manchester United have once again called on social media platforms to do more to protect players from receiving racist abuse, after Marcus Rashford and other players were targeted following the Europa League final.

Rashford took to Twitter after United's defeat in Poland to share that he had received 'at least' 70 racist messages in the immediate aftermath of the game. United later tweeted that other players had also been subjected to the vile abuse.

In a statement, United said: "Everyone at Manchester United is disgusted by the online hate and abuse aimed at Marcus Rashford and other players on social media after last night’s game.

"There is simply no excuse for it and we utterly condemn it.

"Manchester United has zero tolerance of any form of racism or discrimination and we encourage people to report it through manutd.com/seered.

"We also urge social media platforms and regulatory authorities to strengthen measures to prevent this disgusting behaviour."

Rashford said he received a 'mountain' of abuse, posting: "At least 70 racial slurs on my social accounts counted so far. For those working to make me feel any worse than I already do, good luck trying."

In a subsequent tweet, he revealed one of his abusers appeared to be a teacher.

He wrote: "I’m more outraged that one of the abusers that left a mountain of monkey emojis in my DM is a maths teacher with an open profile" he said. "He teaches children!! And knows that he can freely racially abuse without consequence."

Rashford then shared an anonymous user who had responded to his tweets, saying: "You deserve it man you are awful."
