Man Utd To Meet Twitter Over Racial Abuse Of Pogba

It is said that Twitter and Manchester United representatives will be meeting in the next few weeks to discuss the racist comments hauled at Paul Pogba on the social media platform following Manchester United’s 1-1 draw on Monday.

Pogba became the butt of racial abuse after failing to convert a decisive penalty in the 1-1 draw at Molineux stadium in Wolves on Monday.

His teammates, Harry Maguire and Marcus Rashford, stood in support of the Frenchman, calling on Twitter to take action against the culprits responsible for throwing vile racist words at him.

A Twitter spokesman informed one of the most reliable sports communities in England, ‘Sky Sports News’, of the meeting set to hold between Manchester United and Twitter.

"Over the next few weeks, Twitter representatives will meet with Manchester United, Kick It Out and any other civil society stakeholders interested in hearing about the proactive work Twitter is doing to address online racist abuse towards certain footballers in the UK," he said.

The board of Manchester United is also keen on involving Kick It Out (an anti-racism football community), the Football Association and the Premier League to take charge and help solve this issue from all angles.

Anthony Martial, Manchester United forward, opened scoring for the red devils but the defense could not keep out the stunning striker from Wolves midfielder, Ruben Nevez. Pogba had an opportunity to restore parity for the old Trafford faithful through a penalty, but he wasted it and that led to the racist abuse on social media.
