Southampton’s Kyle Walker-Peters Subjected to Racial Abuse Following Man United Draw

Southamp­ton Foot­ball Club has con­tact­ed the police after their defend­er, Kyle Walk­er-Peters, received racial abuse on social media fol­low­ing their goal­less draw with Man­ches­ter United.

The abuse came after Walk­er-Peters’ chal­lenge on Unit­ed’s Ale­jan­dro Gar­na­cho dur­ing the match at Old Traf­ford on Sun­day, which led to Gar­na­cho being sub­sti­tut­ed in the sec­ond half.

The inci­dent has left Southamp­ton dis­gust­ed and dis­ap­point­ed and they have report­ed the mes­sages to the police and social media platforms.

The club has also expressed frus­tra­tion at the lack of mean­ing­ful action by social media plat­forms to com­bat such hatred.

Southamp­ton hopes that this inci­dent will lead to a change in atti­tude towards racial abuse in foot­ball and beyond.
