Manchester United midfielder Fred was sent racially abusive messages on social media following his side's FA Cup exit to Leicester City on Sunday night.

The Brazilian was at fault for Leicester's first goal, and after the match, was sent hateful messages on his Instagram account. Fred's team-mates, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, and Alex Tuanzebe have also been subject to racist comments in the last few months.

And United have also hit out at racist treatment faced by their players.

A recent club statement read: “Manchester United has zero tolerance of any form of racism or discrimination and a longstanding commitment to campaigning against it through our All Red All Equal initiative."

Comments have since been turned off on Fred's post which is about United celebrating their Europa League win over Milan.
