Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold and Naby Keita received racist emojis in replies to footage posted on Instagram following their Champions League defeat to Real Madrid in April; Merseyside Police close their investigation as all offending users have been traced outside of the UK
Merseyside Police have been unable to take action in opposition to the Instagram users who racially abused Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold and Naby Keita after they have been discovered to be based mostly out of the UK.
Monkey emojis have been sent to both players on April 6 following Liverpool’s Champions League defeat at Real Madrid.
The abusive feedback have been removed by Instagram and reported to the police.
Merseyside Police instructed Sky Sports News they’ve closed their investigation as a result of all of the offending users have been traced outside of the UK.
A spokesman for the force stated: “Following a full investigation, all of the offenders have been identified from their social media accounts however all have been based mostly overseas so no additional action was subsequently taken.”
