OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER wants his players to stay off social media to avoid abuse.
Personal and racial abuse of players has become rife on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
Manchester United stars including Marcus Rashford and Axel Tuanzebe have received horrific messages recently.
United boss Solskjaer said: “We’ve already come too far anyway at this concept and the abuse has gone overboard and is unacceptable.
“We would hope we have educated our players enough to stay away from much of the criticism.
“To stop this would be easy, should be so easy that people just have to verify who they are and not all those fake name as and stuff.
“That’s my wish if you want to have an account it has to be verified.”
Solskjaer himself believes he has been a victim of social media abuse.
The Norwegian tactician says he ignores it, but believes his children will have seen it.
Solskjaer added: “I’ve probably been abused right, left and centre, that’s the way it is.

“I don’t know about that at all. It is possible, but it might not have to be in my name.
“But as long as it's verified, I'm happy enough with it.
“I live in 2021 but I’m still old school. I’ve got kids on social media if there’s anything they tell me.”
