Rashford racially abused, Ole "lost for words"



MANCHESTER, England – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said he was "speechless" after a second Manchester United player had been racially abused in social media.

Marcus Rashford received a series of racist tweets after missing a penalty in Saturday's 1

-1 defeat of Crystal Palace at Old Trafford, just five days after similar incidents with Paul Pogba.

"It's the same thing we talked about before the weekend, it has to stop," Solskjaer said at a press conference. "I just do not know, you're still hiding behind fake ID cards, and it's crazy we're talking about it in 2019."

Rashford missed in the second half after Jordan Ayew scored the first goal for Palace after 32 minutes at Liger in Old Trafford in 15 years.

Daniel James equalized with two minutes remaining, only Patrick van Aanholt scoring the winning goal in the third minute of stoppage time after defeating David De Gea at his near-post.

"I think we did not have enough urgency and penetration," said Solskjaer. "[The first goal] was a long kick, such a simple goal, and the last goal where David did not touch the ball [all game] and they hit again, sometimes that will be the case – teams will come here and defend against us . "

Solskjaer was also frustrated with referee Paul Tierney's decision to only punish Gary Cahill with a yellow card in the first half after he pulled back Anthony Martial when the Frenchman seemed to finish the goal.

The Norwegian team should have been punished when Martial seemed to be fouled in the area by Martin Kelly – a decision not lifted by the VAR.

"I think we were unlucky with Martial's clear and obvious punishment," Solskjaer said. "A hit, and if the referee sees the match, he'll know he did not do his best, a penalty that will not slip if he has no center-back on his shoulders."

] United lost Luke Shaw due to an injury in the first half, but Solskjaer hopes that it will not be serious before traveling to Southampton, Shaw's former club, next Saturday.

"We will do the scans tomorrow, but he felt something in his Achilles tendon," Solskjaer said. "I hope it will not be that bad and I hope he will return to Southampton."
