Sky Sports reported that Manchester City striker Raheem Sterling and his colleague Kyle Walker were subjected to racist abuse after their team’s 1-0 defeat to Chelsea in the Champions League final on Saturday.
The network stated that the players were subjected to racist abuse via the “Instagram” social networking site.
She explained that Sterling and defender Walker received pictures of monkeys after the match.
Sterling was subjected to a similar offense after City’s victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League semi-finals.
Many Premier League players have also been subjected to racist abuse during the past few months, including Manchester United striker, Anthony Martial, Liverpool winger, Senegalese, Sadio Mane, and Chelsea player, Reece James.
Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford said he received a lot of racist abuse after his team’s defeat in the Europa League final against Villarreal last Wednesday.
Last February, the English football authorities sent an open letter to “Facebook” and “Twitter”, asking them to address such abuse and prevent its publication.
