Arsenal winger Willian has joined the voices of those demanding decisive action against online racial abuse, pointing towards football authorities and social media companies as the responsible ones, those who can and should do more than they have done so far to protect the victims of these atrocities and punish the culprits.

“We as players, we cannot do a lot,” he said. “We do what we can do. We report it. We share it with you guys (the press) and we speak about that, but we want action. I think we have to try to find a way to stop it because it is difficult when people say horrible words about you, about your family, that’s not good.

The work Mikel Arteta has done since taking over as Arsenal head coach has shown signs of progress, and speaking to the Daily Mail, fellow former midfielder Gilberto Silva believes the boss will do ‘good work’ for the club.

Having arrived to Highbury directly from Brazil in 2002, Silva made a total of 170 appearances in all competitions for the club, scoring on every 10th appearance on average. He was a part of the legendary “Invincibles” team, which won the Premier League title in 2003/04 without a single defeat to earn the name. Further more, he played at the base of midfield, just like Arteta himself.

Racism is currently one of the most glaring issues people around the globe are facing, and unfortunately, football isn’t immune to this disease. The Premier League witnessed a number of incidents involving that kind of disgusting behaviour last season, and not for the first time; not by a long shot.

But the fact that this problem isn’t contained within the boundaries of a country perhaps becomes slightly clearer after Arsenal loanee, 20-year-old defender Jordi Osei-Tutu suffered racial abuse in what was supposed to be a friendly game between VfL Bochum, the club he joined for a year, and Swiss side St Gallen.
