England and Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford fears football is”going backwards rather than forwards” in the battle against racism.
After passing a penalty at the defeat by Crystal Palace in 19, rashford was racially abused on media.
There have been incidents involving Paul Pogba and Tammy Abraham while Romelu Lukaku was exposed to racist chanting.
“To see that it spike in the previous couple of months is unbelievable,” explained Rashford.
“I’ve always said, the more people talk about itdoesn’t have a direct impact – you will find cases where people have spoken and nothing has actually changed.
“we would like to nip it in the bud”
Social media platform Twitter says it’s”taken action” on”over 700 examples of hateful conduct” in the last two weeks.
Twitter said it had met”directly affected” clubs, the Professional Footballers’ Association and Kick out it in an effort to”tackle the issue together”.
But, Rashford considers needs to be done.
“For me, it’s too simple to do whatever you prefer on the internet,” he added.
“Any people today could proceed and create accounts and write what we want under anyone’s posts and nobody would ever know.
“It’s easy to figure it out and in case you have to show identification to make an account which means everyone can only have one account.
“For me personally, there’s thousands of people who use my title on social networking and they’re able to write what they like.”
