The international forward filed his lawsuit in March against the Egyptian citizen who lives in Sharqiya governorate in the Nile Delta, accusing him of calling the player a slur on social media.

The court decided that the citizen’s comment was not meant as a slur against the player, who is of West Indian descent

The 24-year-old forward has pursued legal procedures against several people for online abuse and was able to obtain some fines and in one case, a jail term.

Rashford has made six appearances with Manchester United so far, scoring three goals.

He scored 12 goals in 46 international games with England.
