Manchester United have warned their fans of their behavior after receiving a complaint that ‘discriminatory language’ was targeted at the Wolves because of their HEIGHT during a recent defeat by Bruno Lage’s team at Old Trafford
- Man United sent an email to the fans because inappropriate language was used
- The incident happened when the team lost 1-0 to the Wolves earlier this month
- It is alleged that the abuse of the Wolves player is a mockery of their height
The incident happened during the 1-0 defeat of the Red Devils against the Wolves earlier this month, when Joao Moutinho achieved a late winner for the guests.
It is understood that the complaint was filed after the match, which means that specific individuals were not identified at the time.
Joao Moutinho scored the only goal of the game when the Wolves beat Man United earlier this month
United spent a frustrating evening slipping into their fourth home league defeat of the season
As a result, United sent its response by email to fans suspected of sitting in the area from which the abuse allegedly took place.
As reported Athletic, the e-mail read: “Thank you for your participation in the Premier League match between Manchester United and Wolverhampton Wanderers on January 3, 2022.
“The club was informed that part of the crowd in this match used discriminatory language that was directed against the Wolverhampton Wanderers player according to his height.
“Manchester United is fully committed to ensuring that all forms of discriminatory abuse and / or abusive behavior are eliminated and that appropriate action is taken against all individuals found to be involved in discriminatory and / or offensive chanting or behavior.
Some United fans have been accused of speaking inappropriately to the Wolves player
“In the event that you witness such prohibited discriminatory or offensive behavior, please report it via manutd.com/seered.”
Ralfa Rangnicka have been having problems on the pitch in recent weeks as the interim boss has watched his team lose points in two of their last three league games.
Now it seems that everything is not right in the stands either, although the United hierarchy has acted quickly and tried to ensure that there will be no more problems.
The 13-time Premier League champions will face Aston Villa and Brentford over the next four days, then return to play in front of home fans against West Ham next Saturday.
