Following the online racist abuse the three players experienced after they each missed a penalty in the Euro 2020 final, a wall showing the numbers 17, 25, and 11 was painted as a gesture of support; one of the words sprayed onto the mural read: ‘we do not stand with the 3 Black Lions.’
Following the online racist abuse the three players experienced after they each missed a penalty in the Euro 2020 final shootout loss to Italy, artwork with the numbers 17, 25, and 11 was painted earlier this week as a sign of support.
Anti-immigration vitriol was recently painted on the wall, which is adjacent to another mural honoring Arthur Wharton, England’s first black professional footballer.
After England’s Euro 2020 final defeat by Italy, a mural featuring Marcus Rashford in Withington, Manchester, was vandalized. One of the words sprayed onto the mural also said “we do not stand with the 3 Black Lions.”
Hundreds of individuals took to social media to express their displeasure with the graffiti, which has since been erased.
Anti-racism activists gathered in huge numbers around the mural for an event organized by the organisation Stand Up to Racism to protest the abuse.
The vandalism comes after a mural of Rashford was defaced in Withington, Manchester, where the 23-year-old grew up.
On Thursday, the National Police Chiefs Council announced that a special police unit is investigating a large number of allegations of racist abuse directed against footballers on social media.
During the inquiry, five persons have been arrested so far.
The defacing of the Rashford painting in Manchester is “not considered to be of a racial nature,” according to police, but investigations are ongoing, and forensic specialists are looking at the spray paint used in the incident for more clues.
There have been no arrests, and police are seeking information.
“Although the substance of the vandalism is not believed to be of a racial nature, we are keeping an open mind as to the reason behind defacing the artwork,” GMP said in a statement. 0:29 Time-lapse film shows the Rashford mural’s progress from before it was vandalized to its restoration and redecoration by supporters Superintendent Richard Timson added: “On Monday morning when we noticed t

Around 2.50 a.m. on Monday, Greater Manchester Police opened an investigation after receiving a report of racially aggravated damage to the mural.
On Tuesday evening, crowds gathered for an anti-racism march.
As he thanked individuals for their expressions of support, Rashford claimed he was “lost for words.”
After England’s Euro 2020 final defeat, racist abuse was directed at Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford on social media. A university has revoked an offer to a student during racist abuse directed at England players following the Euro 2020 final.
On Instagram, video footage from a Snapchat group chat surfaced, with one person heard hurling racist words toward Rashford, Sancho, and Saka.
