Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has stated that the racial abuse suffered by Paul Pogba has only made him stronger.
Pogba was racially abused after he failed to convert a penalty against Wolverhampton in the English Premier League on Monday.
Speaking at a press conference ahead of United’s next game against Crystal Palace, Solskjaer revealed the effect the racial abuse had on Pogba.
“Paul’s fine, Paul’s a strong character. He’s a strong character and it makes him stronger.
“When you speak to him he’s fine and I just cannot believe we’re still here in 2019 talking about these instances.
“Social media is a place where people can hide behind fake identities, it’s not down to me to change it but there are so many Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Twitter I know it’s not me.
“We’ve got to do something about it and the authorities have got to do something about it. You feel sorry for [the abusers], they must have problems themselves.”
Solskjaer added: “Sometimes you get annoyed, what can we do about it as Manchester United? We’re not going to ban our players on social media.
“We have to spread the good word, we can use it to spread good and have to stop those incidents.”
