Reds striker Marcus Rashford became the latest high-profile player to be abused, after his side’s 0-0 draw with Arsenal on Saturday evening. In the preceding days, his team-mates Axel Tuanzebe and Anthony Martial, as well as West Bromwich Albion’s Romaine Sawyers and Chelsea’s Reece James, were also targeted.
“Humanity and social media at its worst,” he tweeted.
“Yes, I’m a black man and I live every day proud that I am. No one, or no one comment, is going to make me feel any different. So sorry if you were looking for a strong reaction, you’re just simply not going to get it here.
