Manchester United have sent an email to some of their supporters after being informed that a Wolves player was verbally abused at Old Trafford because of his height, according to reports.

It is understood that the complaint was filed after the match, meaning that specific individuals were not identified at the time.

As a result, United sent out their response via email to fans believed to be sitting in the area from which the abuse allegedly came.
As reported by Athletics, read the email: ‘Thank you for your participation in the Premier League match between Manchester United and Wolverhampton Wanderers on 3 January 2022.
“The club has been made aware that part of the crowd at this match was using discriminatory language directed at a Wolverhampton Wanderers player in relation to his height.
“Manchester United is fully committed to ensuring that all forms of discriminatory abuse and / or offensive conduct are eliminated and that appropriate action can be taken against all persons identified as engaging in discriminatory and / or offensive singing or conduct.

Ralf Rangnick’s team has struggled on the pitch in recent weeks as the interim boss has seen his team lose points in two of their last three league games.
It now appears that everything is not as it should be in the stands, although United’s hierarchy has acted quickly to try to ensure that no more problems come forward.
