MONTREAL -- The Montreal Impact and Major League Soccer have filed a complaint with police after captain Davy Arnaud received death threats on Twitter.

The team says Montreal police have opened an investigation and will interview the person who posted the tweet.

The threats were made following a game last week.

Arnaud retweeted a message that said: "I hope your family dies in a fire." The author appears to be a local soccer fan.

Arnaud answered:

The team said in a statement: "The Impact is taking this incident very seriously and will not accept threats of any kind made by individuals in regards to its players, coaches or administrative staff in order to ensure their safety."
