Ivory Coast and Crystal Palace star Wilfred Zaha has revealed he got racist abuse and threats from Arsenal fans after winning a penalty in Sunday’s 2-2 draw at Selhurst Park.
Zaha was tripped in the box by Granit Xhaka late on allowing the Eagles snatch an equalizer from the spot through Luka Milivojevic.
“For all the people taking it one step further and being racist and wishing death on my family, I wish you and your families the best too,” he said according to BBC Sport.
“My life is still very good despite your hate.”
After the match, Xhaka said in a post-match television interview he thought the incident had been a “clear penalty”.
