[Sport] Anthony Martial racially abused after Manchester United draw

0

Manchester United striker Anthony Martial was subjected to further racist abuse following Sunday’s 1-1 draw at West Brom.

The Frenchman, who along with Axel Tuanzebe was targeted last month following the Red Devils’ loss to Sheffield United, was again on the receiving end after playing the first 66 minutes of the disappointing stalemate at The Hawthorns.

A number of Instagram users left racist words and symbols in the comments section of Martial’s most recent – 16-week-old – post.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer addressed the issue at a press conference on February 1.

Asked if he thinks it is possible to stop, the Norwegian said: “We all know there’s freedom of speech but this crosses a line of what’s unacceptable.

“It’s absolutely unacceptable behaviour in 2021 with the education. So we have to work with the platforms and they’ve got to be stronger to make sure that we stop this.”
