One of the messages read: “I’d rather he’d practised his penalties, and the kids had gone hungry.”

This was aimed at Marcus Rashford who back in October, helped millions of children across the UK receive free school meals during the half-term.

He also tweeted: “All I’m saying is, the white guys scored” and “I can see that this has offended a lot of people, and I’m sorry that black guys are bad at penalties.”

He has since been dropped from his management and has had all of his gigs cancelled.
