Alexander-Arnold, Keita Receive Racist Insults on Social Media

LONDON – Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold and midfielder Naby Keita have been racially abused on social media.

The Guinean midfielder and the Englishman were targeted with monkey emojis on Instagram in the wake of the team’s defeat against Real Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

“As a club, we will offer our players any and all support that they may require. We will also work with the relevant authorities to identify and, if possible, prosecute those responsible,” the club said in a statement.

“LFC condemns all forms of discrimination and we continue to work with our inclusion partners through our Red Together initiative to campaign against it.”

Racial abuse of soccer players on social media has become a common occurrence in the UK which prompted some like former Arsenal and Barcelona star Thierry Henry to close their accounts until the issue is tackled.

The Premier League has called on social media companies to do more to weed out discriminatory abuse and ban offenders from the platforms.
