Female journalist reports sick threats to police after she is targeted by vile trolls over question to Real Madrid boss | The Sun
A FEMALE journalist reported sick threats to the police after she asked Carlo Ancelotti a question.
Maria Moran, who has a child with footballer Jasper Cillessen, covers Real Madrid for beIN Sports and Gol TV.
And in a recent press conference, she quizzed the Los Blancos boss on Vinicius Junior's disciplinary record.
The Brazilian winger picked up his tenth yellow card of the LaLiga season – and 15th overall in 2022-23 – in the 4-2 win over Almeria on April 29.
That saw him suspended for Tuesday's defeat at Real Sociedad.
Moran asked: "Do you think that Vinicius could use a red card as a lesson for these continuous protests to the referees?"

Ancelotti replied: "No, you don't need a red one. With all the yellow cards that he has had, I think that is enough."
A video clip of the exchange circulated on social media and led to vile trolls sending horrible abuse towards the reporter and her baby.
Moran took screenshots of the messages and shared them to the police.
She also tweeted: "These are some of the many comments that I am receiving for carrying out my work as a journalist.

"EVERYTHING is reported to the national police."
Moran has received lots of messages from her colleagues in the media and thanked them for their public show of support.
Earlier this year, Moran accused ex-Barcelona goalkeeper Cillessen of blackmail.
The Spanish journalist claimed he threatened to leak private pictures of her if she did not have an abortion and sued him for allegedly not paying their young daughter's hospital costs.
Moran told Story: "He scared me very much. He made me have an abortion. If I didn’t, he would publish private photos and videos of me.
“He blackmailed me almost daily. I was also not allowed to talk to the media.
“I don’t care about that man’s life. I only care about my daughter, I have to make sure she has food.
