Man Utd’s forward Marcus Rashford has sent 10 lawyers to defend him in his case against an Egyptian student after the former accused the latter with “racism.”
Racial abuse of footballers on social media has significantly increased in recent years, something which led several Premier League clubs to unite together and perform a social media boycott in mass protest.
One of the players that have always been a target of racial and other kinds of abuse on social media is Manchester United and England star Marcus Rashford, who has been receiving racial slurs every time his club and country suffer a defeat or even a draw.
Rashford had before issued a powerful and defiant response to the vile abuse last year, but decided to take the matter into his own hands even more as he filed a lawsuit against an Egyptian citizen, accusing him of social media slur.
The Judicial court in Sharqia has revealed they have received a lawsuit from a legal representative of Rashford, accusing a citizen of insulting and slandering his client.
The court also confirmed that the incident took place on one of the famous social media platforms as the perpetrator sent a “hateful & racial” message on a post shared by the player on one of his official pages.
