Watford defender Christian Kabasele has called for other clubs and social media platforms to do more in the fight against racism.

The Belgian told the Evening Standard that players who are being racially abused online feel "alone" because the platforms on which the abuse happens are not seen to do enough to tackle the problem.

While Watford have reacted to the situation as a club, launching their 'We' campaign to try and tackle the problem, the 30-year-old feels others are not doing enough.

"Unfortunately [the campaign] is the only thing that we can do because the social media platforms don't do anything to prevent this," said Kabasele.

"We have to worry about it. Because for the moment, we are the only ones who will take care about this problem seriously.

“When I say that we are alone, the social media [companies] let us down, but I have to say that the club stood next to us through the ‘We’ Campaign.

“We feel alone because the main actors of this are still ignoring the problem. So in this time we are alone."

Recently, Swansea City and Rangers in Scotland instigated a week-long social media blackout to try and bring about change online but Kabasele thinks more needs to be done to combat the issue.

"I don't think that for the moment it's a big impact on social media, because we are not the only ones who use social media," he said.

"A week blackout or a day blackout, I don't think it will change anything. Maybe we have to think about a longer blackout until the problem is solved."
