AXEL TUANZEBE has responded to vile racists by uploading a powerful video to Instagram.
The Manchester United defender and team-mate Anthony Martial were the victims of sick racist abuse following their side's defeat to Sheffield United.
They were attacked on their social media platforms with some users posting racist comments and symbols.
The Red Devils have condemned the abuse with a strongly worded statement while other United players including captain Harry Maguire have spoken out over the abuse.
Now Tuanzebe is eager to share a message of unity with his latest upload.
The short video shows montages of his defending against the likes of Kylian Mbappe with the words: "My race. My religion. My colour = football."
The likes of Maguire, Kyle Walker-Peters, Donny van de Beek and Fikayo Tomori stood in solidarity by acknowledging the post.
Following the racist abuse, Man United said: “Everyone at Manchester United is disgusted by the racial abuse received by players via social media after last night’s game.
“We utterly condemn it and it is encouraging to see other fans condemn this on social media also.
“Manchester United has zero tolerance of any form of racism or discrimination and a long-standing commitment to campaigning against it through our All Red All Equal initiative.
"Identifying these anonymous mindless idiots remains problematic. We urge social media platforms and regulatory authorities to strengthen measures to prevent this kind of behaviour."
Maguire echoed those comments and further added on United's official site: "
It’s disgusting. I woke up this morning, I was devastated, I was hurt with the result and then I read what’s happened on social media to my team-mates
“It made me feel sick.
“There’s no place for it. They’re definitely no fans of this club, we don’t associate with them. We don’t want their support, so no, it’s so disappointing.
“It hurts that it’s still going on in this day and age. The club have acted, but for sure something needs to change.”
Midfielder Fred wrote on Twitter: "Digusting. We are together against racism."
