"We will continue to work with Manchester City and Manchester United football clubs on this incident and will investigate any other lines of enquiries."

Speaking after the game, Fred blamed a “backward society” for football’s issue with racism, telling ESPN Brazil : “We can't give them any attention because that's all they want. I spoke to the referee after the match, they will do something about it and that's all.
