Crystal Palace midfielder Wilfried Zaha said he has received racist threats and slurs.
The 27-year-old player shared direct Instagram screenshots, where the attacker wrote a series of offensive messages.
“You couldn’t do higher tomorrow, black a**hole. Or I’ll come to your house in a ghost costume “wrote a user who is cheering for Aston Villa, judging from two posts in the profile.
A person referring to ghosts pointed at the clothing of the Ku Klux Klan-white mantles and face-covering hoods.
Apart from the text message, an unknown person sent Zaha a picture in which a blindfolded man stands on one knee, surrounded by more than ten Ku Klux Klan members.
