Man Utd fan was ejected from Old Trafford for allegedly racially abusing Trent Alexander-Arnold

Trent Alexander-Arnold was reportedly the target of racist abuse

A Manchester United fan was reportedly ejected from Old Trafford for racially abusing Trent Alexander-Arnold yesterday evening.

According to The Sun, security teams stepped in after the supporter allegedly shouted "you f***ing black c**t" at the Liverpool right-back.

The incident is said to have occurred close to the players’ executive boxes in the Stretford End, with surrounding fans furiously calling for security.

They have all agreed to cooperate with the investigation into the incident, with United's security team acting at great speed to eject the perpetrator.

A United spokesman said: "We are aware of an incident at yesterday’s game where an individual in the home section has allegedly engaged in racial abuse.

"The individual was identified and ejected from the stadium.

"We are currently investigating the matter as a priority.

"Racism and all forms of discrimination are completely unacceptable and do not reflect the values of our club."

It's yet another reported incident of racist behaviour in English football, with the problem seemingly getting worse.

On Saturday, an FA Cup qualifier between Haringey and Yeovil was postponed after Haringey players were subjected to racist abuse from the stands.

According to the BBC, two men in Somerset have been arrested in relation to the incident.

This all comes less than a week after England's players were the target of racist abuse from Bulgaria fans in Sofia.

On the weekend, the Premier League launched their '#SayNoToRacism' campaign to try and raise more awareness and tackle football's biggest problem.

Sadly, the issue only seems to be getting worse and the only way to begin fixing it is to severely punish those cowards found guilty.
