“La Liga Investigates Racist Abuse Towards Vinicius Jr in El Clasico Clash
During the recent El Clasico match at the Lluis Companys Olympic Stadium, Real Madrid secured a 2-1 victory over Barcelona. However, the game was marred by allegations of racial abuse aimed at Real Madrid’s Vinicius Jr. The incident occurred when Vinicius was substituted late in the second half.
La Liga has taken these allegations seriously and is actively investigating the incident. The league is committed to identifying and holding those responsible for the racist insults accountable. La Liga is working closely with the police and FC Barcelona to address the issue.
While Real Madrid has not issued a statement at this time, Barcelona has expressed their commitment to upholding the values of respect in sports and football. They too will conduct an investigation into any potential racist insults that may have occurred during the match against Real Madrid.
This unfortunate incident is not an isolated one. Vinicius Jr has been subjected to racial abuse on multiple occasions:
– In September 2022, Atletico Madrid fans sang racist songs towards Vinicius outside their stadium.
– In December 2022, Vinicius appeared to be racially abused at Valladolid after being substituted.
– In January 2023, an effigy of Vinicius was hung from a bridge near the club’s training ground.
– In February 2023, Mallorca fans were filmed allegedly racially abusing Vinicius during a game against Real.
– In March 2023, La Liga reported intolerable racist behavior against Vinicius in a match against Barcelona.
– In May 2023, Vinicius faced racist abuse during a match against Valencia, leading to the detention of three individuals.
– In October 2023, a Sevilla supporter was ejected for allegedly directing racist abuse towards Vinicius.
– Just last week, a Sevilla supporter was ejected for similar behavior, marking the 19th occasion of racial abuse Vinicius has endured.
Vinicius Jr has been vocal about these incidents and even provided evidence in the trial of three Valencia fans accused of racially abusing him during a match in May at Estadio Mestalla.”
