THE Vinicius was racially abused during Real Madrid’s match against Valencia, causing the Brazilian to erupt and be sent off at the end of the match.
In his statements after the game, Carlo Ancelotti took issue with La Liga and argued that when a player is racially attacked, the match should be stopped.
“We have expressed our complaints many times about what is happening but nothing changes. The whole situation has reached the point where a coach is thinking of substituting his player, when the match should have been stopped.
When this happens, it is obvious that there is a serious problem with racism, something is very wrong. When the whole field yells at a player that he is a monkey the game must stop. There are no “ifs” and “buts” in issues related to racism.
THE Vinicius in turn, he responded with a story on his personal Instagram account stating: “The prize the racists won was my expulsion. This is not football, this is La Liga.”
In her turn, Valencia condemned everything that happened today with a statement: “Although an isolated episode, insults to any opposing player have no place in football and do not fit the values and identity of Valencia. The club is investigating what happened and will take the strictest measures.”
