After the abuse Manchester United club release a statement to condemn this behavior as they set to meet with Twitter to discuss on how to eradicate this issue.
“My ancestors and my parents suffered for my generation to be free today, to work, to take the bus, to play football,” the 26-year-old wrote on Twitter.
“Racist insults are ignorance and can only make me stronger and motivate me to fight for the next generation.”
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the United manager, has been shocked by the latest incidences of racism aimed at his players.
“We spoke about this before the weekend. We need to stop it,” said Solskjaer.
“I’m lost for words. We keep having all these campaigns – no to racism, and they keep hiding behind fake identities.
“It’s just crazy that we’re talking about this in 2019.”
Pogba and his Manchester United team-mate, Marcus Rashford, have been targeted by racist abuse on social media in the past week.
