Real Madrid star suffers online racist abuse after World Cup final loss

Real Madrid star Aurelien Tchouameni was targeted by racist online abuse following France’s 2022 World Cup final defeat to Argentina.

La Albiceleste secured a dramatic first world title for captain Lionel Messi on a whirlwind night in Qatar for both sides.

However, shortly after the final whistle in Lusail, Tchouameni was the victim of racist comments via social media, alongside Les Bleus teammates Kingsley Coman and Randal Kolo Muani.

All three players featured in the final for the defending champions, with Tchouameni and Coman unfortunately missing spot kicks in the penalty shootout, and Muani being superbly denied by Emiliano Martinez in extra time.

Coman’s club FC Bayern have released a statement condemning the incident with social media giant Meta conducting an investigation to track down the accounts involved in the abuse.

The trio are expected to be granted an additional break by their clubs, following extended World Cup duty, with Tchouameni not due back in Madrid until the start of 2023.

  1. Since anyone can make a fake account on social media nothing can be taken with prime face value thats coming from those cesspits of human depravity.
    Wouldnt be surprised if it was barcELona fans.

  2. please let the fans bear with the black players. all through the seasons these black players sacrifice themselves just to entertain you the fans, but just because of one penalty shootout that they lost to their counterpart you are going all out to redicule them. you guys need to stop this.

  3. I’m simply not surprised about this…I see an African country located in Europe…I see white skin country who can’t just kick a ball…yet insulting their black people for missing a penalty…shame on you…practice what you preach…human right but you share table with racism…hypocrites.

  4. “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me.” I was taught this rule from my childhood. Now remember true hate . . . The murder of World Cup Venezuelan player Andrés Escobar, 26 years ago, for recording an own-goal, is a real tragedy. These social media taunts are nothing in comparison and should not be considered newsworthy. It just keeps stirring the pot.
