Manchester United stars Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard have offered their support to young Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham after he was subjected to racist abuse following the UEFA Super Cup.

The 21-year-old was subsequently targeted with racist abuse on social media, with Chelsea saying they were ‘disgusted with the abhorrent posts’ aimed at the young striker.

Abraham’s Chelsea team-mate Christian Pulisic also backed the striker to bounce back, saying following Wednesday’s defeat to Liverpool: “We said to him, ‘It’s penalties, man – somebody has to miss’.

“This is a call to action – we want to know what they are going to do to tackle this insidious problem.” And England colleagues Rashford and Lingard have also backed Abraham with a series of messages to the Chelsea man.

He’ll move on, he’ll score a goal in the next game and everything will be forgotten.

“We send our support to Tammy and reiterate our call for Twitter and other social companies to clamp down on this level of abuse.

The Blues suffered defeat to Liverpool in Istanbul in a penalty shoot-out, with Abraham seeing his final kick saved by Reds goalkeeper Adrian to give the Champions League winners victory.
