Manchester derby: Man held over ‘racist abuse’ | UK News



A man has been arrested over allegations of racist abuse during the Manchester derby last night, police say.

At least two United players including Brazilian star Fred and England international Jesse Lingard are believed to have been targeted with abuse during the game at the Etihad Stadium, which also saw missiles thrown from the stands.

The Greater Manchester force said a man has been detained on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order after a video posted on social media showed a supporter making racist gestures at Saturday’s match.
