Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba claims racist insults motivate him to inspire change for millennia to come after he and his teammate Marcus Rashford have been the subjects of social media violence.

Pogba saw a penalty saved by Rui Patricio in Monday’s 1-1 Premier League draw with Wolves and racist remarks were subsequently posted online.

Rashford was then subjected to similar social media discrimination after he too failed to convert a penalty in United’s 2-1 home defeat by Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was “lost for words” at the abuse being repeated, but Pogba is using the negativity to push himself and make a difference for younger generations.

The Frenchman wrote on Twitter: “My ancestors and my parents suffered for my generation to be free today, to work, to take the bus, to play football.

“Racist insults are ignorance and can only make me stronger and motivate me to fight for the next generation.”
