Manchester United midfielder Fred received racial attacks on social media.
His Instagram page was filled with racial and personal abuse as a result of his team’s FA Cup elimination.
The bullying got so bad that Fred disabled the comments on his most recent post, a photo of him and fellow midfielder Paul Pogba celebrating their win over AC Milan on Thursday.
In the 3-1 FA Cup quarter-final defeat to Leicester City on Sunday, the Brazilian was to blame for Kelechi Iheanacho’s opener.
He under-hit a back-pass that allowed the Nigerian to tap in with ease.
