Manchester City superstar racially abused after Carabao Cup win
Pep Guardiola confirms Manchester City star is set to join Barcelona
Sunday’s victory over Tottenham Hotspur saw Manchester City win their fourth consecutive Carabao Cup. It was a dominant male performance in Sky Blue. Aymeric Laporte pushed a header to the back of the net in the 82nd minute.
Tottenham were forced to stay in their own half for most of the game, but had an occasional breakaway.
However, after the triumph of the Carabao Cup, ESPN understands that Kyle Walker has been racially abused online, which is very disheartening to see. It is extremely sad to understand and realize that racism still exists in this world and is truly part of our community.
Kyle Walker was racially abused on Instagram by an unknown user and the full back took to his Instagram story to ask a very specific question, “When is this going to end?” @instagram “
Racism has no place in this world and certainly not in football because it is an equal game.
Manchester United’s Antony Martial and Marcus Rashford have recently been victims of online abuse. Chelsea’s Reece James and Liverpool‘s Trent Alexander-Arnold and Sadio Mane are also among the many names that have been subjected to such cheap deed from a few bewildered and lost individuals.
Instagram and Twitter have launched new efforts to tackle the herd spread pest in society. The English football authorities had decided a day before the cup final a three-day social media boycott would be followed next week. It shows and proves their stand of solidarity with victims of racial abuse online and their tough stance towards offenders.
Manchester City and Kyle Walker must now put that behind them and focus on their all-important UEFA Champions League semi-final clash against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday.
A treble is quite expected for the Sky Blues.
