Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta revealed that he and his family received threats on social media.
Arteta, in a press conference on Friday, called on companies to take decisive action to address online abuse.
Before Sunday’s game against Leeds, the Spaniard also said the club tried to deal with an incident.
“I’d rather not [talk about it] but I think we’re all exposed to it in this industry,” Arteta said.
“That’s why I prefer not to read [social networks] because it would affect me much more personally the moment someone wants to touch my family.
“Because it happened, the club knew about it and we tried to do something about it.That is all. We have to live with it.
“It is not going to stop tomorrow, we know, but in the medium or long term, can we do something about it? That’s what I’m pushing for.
“We are also lucky that the club is very supportive. We do what we have to do when those things happen.
“My only purpose is that it won’t happen tomorrow, but can we do something about it in the medium or long term to protect the people involved in gambling, and maybe in other industries, it will happen the same way? “
