Anthony Martial has asked Manchester United to help with security at his house after racist trolls abused him and his wife on social media.
Martial was targeted with vile racist abuse following Man United’s shock home defeat to Sheffield United last week.
The forward’s wife, Melanie, also received online hate which included death threats to both herself and her husband.
The couple, who have a young child, have since approached the club who are believed to be happy to assist with extra security at their house.
