Soccer players in England are asking social media companies to permanently delete accounts after a single racist post and commit greater resources to identifying abuse.
The Professional Footballers' Association met with Twitter, Facebook and Instagram after many of its members staged a 24‑hour social media boycott in April as part of a campaign called "Enough".
But the opening month of the Premier League season has seen black players subjected to racial abuse, including Marcus Rashford after missing a penalty for Manchester United, and the PFA wants tougher action from the social networks.
The PFA told The Associated Press it wants "sufficient resources dedicated to identifying and removing offending posts without delay."
