Marcus Rashford is the No1 trolled Premier League footballer on Twitter.
The England and Manchester United striker suffered the most hate abuse with 28.5% of negative messages.
He has been told to “stick to football” and called “rubbish” after getting involved in a campaign based around supporting child poverty.
But others praised him for urging Prime Minister
Boris Johnson to help vulnerable youngsters during the coronavirus pandemic. His stance saw him awarded an MBE last weekend.
One fan tweeted: “Deserves a standing ovation at every ground when fans are allowed back in.”
While another wrote: “He’s a fantastic human being.”
The 22-year-old hit back at trolls, saying: “People need help! Children need help. These children are the future of this country – our nurses, our doctors, our health care workers.
“Anyway, I’m off to ‘stick to my football’. Have a good weekend everyone.”
His England team-mate Raheem Sterling, 25, came second with 24.7% of negative comments, while fellow Man City ace Gabriel Jesus, 23, was third (22%).
Tottenham duo Harry Kane, 27, and Dele Alli, 24, made up the top five with Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil, 31, Red Devils keeper David De Gea, 29, and Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk, 29, completing the top 10.
