Phil Neville calls out social media for continuing player abuse

Phil Neville is calling on social media companies to do more to tackle the discriminatory abuse directed at players.

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham, Reading’s Yakou Meite and Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba have all received vile, racist abuse online after failing to score penalties in the last week.

Pogba’s treatment prompted a rapid response from his club, which issued a strong statement on Tuesday morning to condemn the abuse and urge social media companies “to take action”.
