West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice says after shifting allegiance into England from the Republic of Ireland he received risks over websites.
The 20-year-old represented Ireland and also won three senior caps in friendlies – before shifting to the country of his arrival in February.
“I have had people saying they are going to come into my property,” he told ITV News.
“You click on their profile and they would just be a bogus profileso you don’t know if it is true or not.”
Rice is the latest high profile player to show they’ve already been been abused on networking, also England women’s head coach Phil Neville says it should be boycotted by players.
Rice showcased on Saturday in their 4-0 Euro 2020 qualifier win against Bulgaria and has won four caps for England.
“Thinking about it, I was never actually scared about it, since always fans will be giving me misuse and whatnot over it,” he further added.
“You just kind of look at it and laugh, you think,’Yeah, all right, as if you’re going to come along and do this type of thing’.”
Rice’s England team-mate Marcus Rashford was mistreated on social websites after missing a penalty in Manchester United’s defeat by Crystal Palace in August and has said he fears soccer is”moving backwards”.
Social media platform Twitter says it had”taken action” on”more than 700 cases of hateful conduct” from the 2 weeks leading up to England’s win against Bulgaria.
Twitter said it had also met”directly influenced” clubs, the Professional Footballers’ Association and Kick it Out in an effort to”tackle the problem collectively”.
