– Axel Tuanzebe has come under another racist attack from fans following Man United’s draw with Everton
– The 22-year-old came in three minutes to the end of the game as the Toffees scored a last-gasp leveler through Dominic Calvert-Lewin
– Tuanzebe and Anthony Martial were also targeted after Sheffield United pull out a surprise win at Old Trafford
Man United star Axel Tuanzebe has been again subjected to racial abuse after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men were held to a 3-3 draw by Everton, Mirror.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin got a last-minute equalizer to salvage a point for the Toffees and United fans are not happy with the outcome of the scoreline.
Tuanzebe was for the second time within the space of ten days racially attacked on social media despite coming on as a late substitute in the game at Old Trafford.
The young center-back along with Anthony Martial were targets of racists when Sheffield United shocked the Red Devils at home a few days back.
United released a statement condemning the abuse received by Tuanzebe and Martial following the defeat Sheffield last week:
The statement read:
“Everyone at Manchester United is disgusted by the racial abuse received by players via social media after last night’s game.
“We utterly condemn it and it is encouraging to see other fans condemn this on social media also.
“Manchester United has zero tolerance of any form of racism or discrimination and a long-standing commitment to campaigning against it through our All Red All Equal initiative.
“Identifying these anonymous mindless idiots remains problematic. We urge social media platforms and regulatory authorities to strengthen measures to prevent this kind of behaviour.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer blatantly stated his side are not in the title race after the Red Devils threw away two points in the 3-3 draw against Everton.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin grabbed the late goal as Everton fought from two goals down to claim an unlikely point at Old Trafford.
The draw leaves Manchester United two points adrift off rivals Manchester City, who have two games in hand.
