England and Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford anxieties soccer is”going backwards rather than forwards” from the fight against racism.
After passing a penalty in the defeat by Crystal Palace in August rashford was racially abused on social networking.
There have been similar incidents while Romelu Lukaku was exposed to racist chanting between Tammy Abraham and Paul Pogba.
“To view it spike in the last few months is unbelievable,” explained Rashford.
“I’ve always said, the longer people talk about itdoesn’t have a direct impact – you will find cases where individuals have spoken and nothing has really changed.
“We want to nip it in the bud”
Social networking platform Twitter says it has”taken actions” on”over 700 examples of hateful conduct” in the previous two weeks.
Twitter stated it had also met”directly affected” clubs, the Professional Footballers’ Association and Kick out it in an endeavor to”tackle the issue together”.
But, more needs to be accomplished are believed by Rashford.
“For me personally, it’s too simple to do whatever you like on the internet,” he added.
“Any of us today could proceed and make stories and write what we need under anyone’s articles and no one would ever know.
“It’s easy to find it out and in case you have to show identification to make an account which means everybody can just have one account.
“For me, there’s thousands of people that use my title on social networking and they’re able to write what they like.”
