Fred racially abused by Manchester City fan amidst derby game in the 16th game-week of the Premier League season, as Manchester United dominate.
Racism is already a huge issue in world football, where whole football fraternity ardently opposes the disgraceful act. Yet, in one of the biggest football encounters in the world, an act of racism managed to take place.
Manchester United’s Fred was racially abused by a Manchester City fan when the Brazilian went to take the free-kick. The Red Devils were winning the game by 2-0 at that point of time.
In response, Manchester City fans were infuriated with their team’s performance and were hostile towards their city rivals. Thus, during Manchester United’s first corner in the game, the Citizens threw stuff at Fred.
But this was not all, amidst this, a fan was spotted making alleged monkey imitations and slurs in front of Fred while he was stepping out to take the corner. Probably, Fred did not notice it but the camera at the game surely did.

The video quickly went viral online and has called out football authorities to take instant action against the fan, who allegedly made racial abuse on Fred.
On the other hand, the Brazilian midfielder was also hit by bottles and other stuff thrown by fans. This is the third defeat to Manchester City in this Premier League season with competitive rivals Liverpool slowly marching towards title victory.

Later in the game, Nicolas Otamendi scored a goal to bring hope among the home fans that Pep Guardiola’s men might make a comeback, as Manchester City picked up aggression in a desire to fetch another goal.
