Following racist abuse aimed at Paul Pogba after missing his penalty, his Manchester United teammates Marcus Rashford and Harry Maguire have stood by the Frenchman by condemning racism.
Pogba was brought down inside the box by Conor Coady and stepped up to take the penalty but unfortunately for him, his penalty was saved by Rui Patricio. The midfielder was subsequently subjected to racial slurs on social media following the fixture, with United releasing a statement on Tuesday in which they said they were "disgusted" by the abuse.
Disgusting. Social media need to do something about it... Every account that is opened should be verified by a passport/driving licence. Stop these pathetic trolls making numerous accounts to abuse people. @Twitter @instagram https://t.co/bzow073aTw— Harry Maguire (@HarryMaguire93) August 20, 2019
