This disgusts me.
To see anyone — not just a Manchester United player — racially abused is horrible.
Axel Tuanzebe received vile abuse on both Twitter and Instagram, which has forced him to delete his account from Twitter and to remove a post from Instagram.
The young centre-back didn’t perform well last night but wasn’t to blame for the 2-1 defeat. It just shows how childish the abusers are to vent anger on social media. It’s as though they feel through anonymity they can say what they like but I hope they’re caught by the authorities and punished.
It was a lacklustre performance from the whole team but the reaction from some morons was typically toxic. On Instagram, the comment section below Tuanzebe’s post was flooded with monkey emojis and other racist symbols.
Look at the abuse Tuanzebe is getting on his Instagram page after tonight’s result, Racism in football has got to stop man it’s disgraceful pic.twitter.com/TqmnIjbhSY

We can only reassure the defender that he has has our support and these idiots are not fans. They are attention seekers who wouldn’t dare post such hatred under their genuine identity.
Some idiots abusing Tuanzebe on Instagram. Shameful stuff and obviously not United fans.
