English Premier League giants Manchester United has released a statement following the racial abuses directed to their midfielder Paul Pogba on Monday.
United condemned the racial abuse that targeted the midfielder after he failed to score a penalty in the 1-1 draw at Molineux.
The statement noted: "Everyone at Manchester United is disgusted by the racial abuse aimed at Paul Pogba last night and we utterly condemn it.
"The individuals who expressed these views do not represent the values of our great club and it is encouraging to see the vast majority of our fans condemn this on social media also.
"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."
Pogba has received support from a number of his teammates with defender Harry Maguire leading the way by calling the instances as pathetic.
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
