Arsenal fan admits threatening Neal Maupay with death threats

Following the Premier League match between Arsenal and Brighton in June 2020, Derek Ng De Ren risks a fine of up to £10,000 or a two-year jail term for abusing Maupay via Instagram.

The remarks were submitted to the Premier League via its online abuse reporting system, and the league worked with the club and Singapore authorities to track down and prosecute the guy.

“I’d like to thank the club and Premier League for their assistance and professionalism in dealing with this problem, as well as the Singapore police and courts,” Maupay said in a statement on Brighton’s website.

“The terrible and poison abuse I was subjected to is a daily occurrence for many professional sports and public people, and I hope this goes some way toward demonstrating to those online trolls that it is completely wrong and that the authorities are prepared to take appropriate action.”

“The online abuse Neal experienced was disgusting, and no one should have to cope with such dangerous messages,” Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters added. We are dedicated to assisting players, managers, and their families, and we will continue to collaborate with appropriate authorities in the battle against online hatred.”

Ng targeted Maupay after the striker scored the game-winning goal against Arsenal in a game in which he was also involved in a challenge with Bernd Leno, which ended in the goalkeeper being carried off the field on a stretcher.

The 19-year-old male was identified and located after a police investigation in Singapore, with support from Brighton and the Premier League. On July 7, Ng will be sentenced.
