Ivorian international, Wilfried Zaha called on authorities to take racism seriously after he was sent racist abuse following Crystal Palace’s win over Manchester City.

The 28-year-old posted a series of racist messages he had received on Instagram on Saturday night.

The Palace forward said he wanted action over the issue rather than sympathy.



“I’m not here for all the nonsense that is being done instead of fixing the actual problem!” he said.


“This message isn’t for me to get a million messages saying we stand with you and it’s disgusting or about me getting sympathy,” Zaha wrote on Instagram.

“I don’t mind abuse because nowadays it comes with doing the job I do even though it’s not an excuse but my color will always be the real problem, it’s fine because I’ll always be BLACK AND PROUD! “Speak to me when you actually take this issue serious.”



Zaha became the first player to score 50 top-flight goals for Crystal Palace on Saturday as they shocked 10-man City with a 2-0 defeat at Etihad Stadium.
