Liverpool issue statement about racist abuse

Liverpool Football Club have issued a statement condemning those who targetted Trent Alexander-Arnold, Naby Keita and Sadio Mane with racist abuse before and after Tuesday night’s game with Real Madrid.

“Once again we are sadly discussing abhorrent racial abuse the morning after a football game. It is utterly unacceptable and it has to stop.

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

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.

We know that this will not be enough until the strongest possible preventative measures are taken by social media platforms and the regulatory bodies which govern them.

The current situation cannot be allowed to continue and it is incumbent on all of us to ensure that it does not.”

Facebook, who own Instagram, are under pressure to take tougher steps to tackle the issue despite claiming they have brought in tougher measures on their platform.
