Man Utd star suffers racist abuse

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said he was 'lost for words' after Marcus Rashford was a victim of racial abuse after his penalty miss.
 
United suffered their first loss of the season with a 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Saturday. Rashford hit the upright from the spot with United trailing 1-0 with half an hour to go.
 
The Red Devils' striker was subjected to racial abuse on Twitter after the miss. It follows the victimisation of Paul Pogba, who also had to endure racial taunts after the Frenchman missed a spot-kick in the 1-1 draw with Wolves.
 
And Solskjaer was left speechless as to how these sort of incidents could still be happening in this day and age.
 
"We spoke about this before the weekend. We need to stop it," Solskjaer was quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
 
"I'm lost for words. We keep having all these campaigns - no to racism, and they keep hiding behind fake identities.
 
"It's just crazy that we're talking about this in 2019."
