Wolves fan racially abused Rio Ferdinand during Manchester United win

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand was watching the match for BT Sport when a Wolves fan inside the stadium racially abused him.

Ferdinand has accused a Wolves fan of racial abuse after alleging the supporter made monkey gestures in his direction during Manchester United’s 2-1 win at Molineux.

It was the first time this season – for the last match – that fans were welcomed back into Molineux, and most fans tried to make the occasion about saying goodbye to manager Nuno Espirito Santo.

Sadly, one individual used the game as an opportunity to racially abuse another human being. Ferdinand took to Twitter with an emotional post:

This isn’t the first episode of racism with United players this season. Social media has become a pit of hate, with a number of players subject to online abuse this season such as: Anthony Martial, Axel Tuanzebe and Fred.

Far too many instances of racism this season.

On air, Ferdinand made it very clear that he would like to meet the Wolves fan in question to ‘educate him’.
