The winger called on Instagram to take the issue more seriously and act to prevent online abuse

Wilfried Zaha has highlighted racist abuse he was sent online after Crystal Palace’s victory at 曼彻斯特城 星期六.

Zaha scored the opener in Palace’s 2-0 赢, which also saw City defender Aymeric Laporte sent off for a foul on the forward.

The Ivory Coast international subsequently posted screenshots on Instagram of racist abuse he had received following the match.

And Zaha wrote: “This message isn’t for me to get a million messages saying we stand with you and it’s disgusting or about me getting sympathy.

Wilfried Zaha posted on his Instagram story

“I’m not here for all the nonsense that is being done instead of fixing the actual problem!

“I don’t mind abuse because nowadays it comes with doing the job I do even though it’s not an excuse, but my colour will always be the real problem, but it’s fine because I’ll always be BLACK AND PROUD!

“Speak to me when you actually take this issue serious.”

The PA news agency has contacted Instagram for comment.
