Why Did Marcus Rashford Report To Police | What actually happened

Following his team’s defeat in the Europa League final against Villarreal on Wednesday night, the Manchester United attacker said he had received more than 70 hostile comments online. Those messages were relayed to the police by the club.

Insults addressed towards the 23-year-old were removed from Instagram overnight, and racist messages were also posted on Twitter.

“At least 70 racial insults on my social accounts counted so far,” Rashford stated in a tweet to his 4.5 million followers.

According to Rashford, One of the people who texted him insults was a teacher.

“I’m even more upset because one of the attackers who left a mound of monkey emojis in my DM has an open profile and is a maths teacher. He is a teacher of children!! And he knows he may freely racially insult without fear of repercussion,” he wrote.

Rashford then tweeted, in response to a congratulatory message from Manchester United’s editorial staff, “We all wear the same shirt. We’re all playing with the same ball. I’ve been playing this game since I was able to walk. I’m made to take criticism, but I can’t stand the ape, monkey, baboon, banana, and jungle jargon. It’s quite difficult for me to read as a United supporter. And I can only imagine how I would have felt if I had read that as a 7-year-old. “How could I ever believe in humanity?”

Rashford expressed regret to fans for his team’s failure to win the Europa League final. “I’ll be the first to admit that this season has been difficult for me. It’s not about dedication, devotion, or talent. The fact is that I’ve had to overcome physical challenges that I’m currently dealing with.”

With the forward expected to join England’s camp for the European Championship this summer, he is expected to put the incident behind him. His reps acknowledged that he will be sharing the facts of the racial abuse with authorities, even though he did not publish them.
