Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has once again demanded action over racist abuse online, after Marcus Rashford suffered racial slurs on Twitter, following his penalty miss in their 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Paul Pogba was also subject of racial abuse, after he missed a spot kick in United’s draw with Wolves on Monday.

A repeat of one of his players being called the N-word on the internet has angered the Norwegian manager and he believes more must be done to stop anonymous abuse on social media.

“We need to stop it, it needs to stop.

“I’m just lost for words if it keeps going. We keep having all these campaigns and they keep hiding behind fake identities.

“It’s crazy that we talk about this in 2019,” the 46-year-old told reporters, after hearing of the treatment of Rashford, soon after Saturday’s final whistle.
