Arsenal midfielder Willian has undergone racist abuse on Instagram.

The 32-year-old Brazilian posted screenshots from a directive where insults were sent to him.

“Go back to the jungle, you bloody monkey,” one user wrote to Willian in a private message. “F**k off , monkey,” another user wrote. 

Another person sent Willian an emoji of a monkey and a banana. The footballer himself wrote in a post, “Something needs to change. The fight against racism continues.”

Writing about football is one of my favorite things to do. As a football writer, I love the rush of being in the stadium on game day and watching all the action live. It's like no other feeling for me. I'm passionate about writing about it, but until recently I've been doing it as a hobby rather than a profession.
