Manchester United to investigate racist abuse aimed at Ashley Young

Published: Updated:

Manchester United said on Wednesday they are investigating the racist abuse directed at defender Ashley Young on social media after the club’s Champions League quarter-final exit in Barcelona.

England international Young was targeted on Twitter after the 33-year-old full back endured a disappointing night in United’s 3-0 second-leg defeat by Barcelona on Tuesday.

“Manchester United utterly condemns racist social media comments posted around yesterday’s Champions League fixture,” the club said in a statement.

“We are working to identify individuals involved and we will take the strongest possible action we can against them.
