Paul Pogba suffers racial attack – Pogba suffered a disgusting lash on social media after Manchester finished in a 1-1 draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

It is possible that Pogba, an otherwise brilliant player, was having a bad day, which is normal.

Unfortunately, he missed a penalty which made it his fourth miss in 9 spot-kicks.

Even so, he was backed up by Ole Gunnar Solskjær.

The result of this miss is what is disheartening.

Pogba had a number of racial insensitive tweets directed his way, making him the third footballer to suffer the same fate in just seven days simply because they missed a penalty.

Manchester F.C was quick to release a statement against such tweets.

The club condemned the situation in the strongest terms possible.

It went on to say that the views expressed by the few were not a reflection of its overall values.

The club was also glad that other members of the public saw and called out the people who made such demeaning statements.

The official statement read,

“Manchester United has zero tolerance of any form of racism or discrimination and a long-standing commitment to campaigning against it through our #AllRedAllEqual initiative.

We will work to identify the few involved in these incidents and take the strongest course of action available to us.

We also encourage social media companies to take action in these cases.”

Harry Maguire also took to his Twitter page to condemn the act. He went ahead to suggest that something should be done

and that social media users should open accounts using official documents such as a driving licence

which would help get hold of people who disrespect others and those who spew hate online.

These same sentiments were echoed by Rashford who also mentioned on his Twitter page that anyone who attacked Pogba was attacking everyone on the team since they were all one big family.

Rashford called for the bullying to stop as it was now enough. Who else suffered a similar fate as Pogba.

Chelsea’s Centre forward Tammy Abraham also suffered the same fate after he missed a decisive penalty against Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup final shootout.

His manager, Frank Lampard, pointed out the need for social media companies to act fast in order to curb the increasing abuse.

James McClean of Stoke City, Theo Robinson of Southend United and Barnsley’s Bambo Diaby, not forgetting Fulham defender Cyrus Christie have all been on the receiving end of such abuse.

According to Kick It Out, the latest fixture rounds have seen a lot of racist remarks.

While Reading’s Yakou Méïté and Manchester United’s Paul Pogba may have been on the receiving end recently, the need for the vice needs to be curbed early enough before it gets out of hand continues to be clear with each passing day.

Paul Pogba has not had an easy time recently.

An unfortunate miss has caused him major strain as he became victim to social media bullying.
