Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says the racist abuse targeted at Paul Pogba only makes him ‘stronger’.

Pogba was subject to abhorrent racist messages following the 1-1 draw away to Wolves on Monday night.

The Frenchman missed a penalty in the game, prompting a tiny minority of supporters to turn to social media and racially abuse him.

It’s far too accessible for people to set up anonymous Twitter accounts and have the freedom to say whatever they please.

There has to be more done to prevent the trolls, but it has to be acknowledged that this a societal problem, not just a football one that is in need of being addressed.
