Man United Striker Rashford Suffers Racial Abuse Online After Europa League Loss


 Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford said he had received “at least 70 racial slurs” on social media following Wednesday’s Europa League final loss to Villarreal.

United later tweeted to say their players had been subjected to “disgraceful racist abuse”.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side lost 11-10 on penalties after a 1-1 draw.

“At least 70 racial slurs on my social accounts counted so far,” Rashford wrote on Twitter.

“For those working to make me feel any worse than I already do, good luck trying.”

In another tweet, Rashford said he was “more outraged” that one of the abusers who sent him a direct message appeared to be a maths teacher, adding:

“He teaches children. And knows that he can freely racially abuse without consequence.”

It is understood the account has been deleted and the abuse will be reported to police by the club.
