Vinicius Junior has had enough. During the match between Real Madrid and Valencia, the Brazilian was once again the victim of racist insults from opposing fans. This is unfortunately not the first time that the international Auriverde has had to face gestures or words of this type. Reassembled, he emptied his bag on his social networks. “It wasn’t the first time, nor the second, nor the third. Racism is normal in La Liga. The League thinks it’s normal, the Federation too and the opponents encourage it. I am really sorry. The championship that once belonged to Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Cristiano and Messi now belongs to the racists. A beautiful nation, which welcomed me and which I love, but which agreed to export the image of a racist country in the world. I’m sorry for the Spaniards who disagree, but today in Brazil, Spain is known as a country of racists. And unfortunately, for everything that happens every week, I have no defense. I agree. But I am strong and I will go all the way against the racists. Even if I have to go far from here”.
WhileESPN Brazil reveals that his entourage pushes him to leave, the player wants to continue in Madrid. But his agents do not intend to miss anything, they who gave a layer this Monday by publishing an acid press release. “It is nothing more than another reflection of what has been seen throughout this LaLiga season, in which it has become clear to the whole world that in all of Spain they do not accept the role of a young black man. They can’t accept that the most decisive and relevant athlete in La Liga is a young black man. During the match between Valencia and Real Madrid, we witnessed scenes of widespread, intentional and already institutionalized racism, which are among the most disgusting in the history of football. Three years after the world was shocked by a video in which George Floyd was brutally restrained, today the world witnessed an event in which Vinicius was cowardly, violently and unacceptable restrained during a ‘a match. La Liga’s veiled consent to all this discrimination has for months been a message to all Spaniards that they don’t want to have the best, if they’re black. Blacks in La Liga are only accepted if they don’t make noise, and that Vini will never be. Neither on the pitch, nor off it. The message is clear !
