LaLiga has asked the fans for their collaboration to identify the people who used racist insults against Vinicius Júnior in the match between Mallorca and Real Madrid, played last Sunday at the Son Moix stadium in Palma. “Given the events that occurred in the RCD Mallorca-Real Madrid match, in which once again intolerable racist insults were observed against Real Madrid player Vinicius Jr, LaLiga is putting all the technical means at its disposal and working with the local club for the identification of those responsible, with the aim of taking the appropriate legal measures”, says the competition statement published this Monday.
The institution directed by Javier Tebas has enabled the email [email protected] so that fans who may have images or some indication of the identity of those responsible can contact the employer and “facilitate the necessary identification to file complaints pertinent”.
“LaLiga firmly condemns what happened and, as on previous occasions, will file the necessary complaints and will appear in person to continue fighting, within its powers, against any type of racist act, behavior or incident”, indicates the organization, which adds that “it has years against fighting this kind of behavior and promoting the positive values of sport, not only on the field of play, but also off it”.
The insults uttered by a fan in the Balearic stadium are a new chapter against the Real Madrid player. The previous ones took place in the match in Valladolid and in the hours before the derby against Atlético in the Copa del Rey, which led to a meeting taking place on Monday the 30th at the headquarters of the State Attorney General’s Office to establish a framework of collaboration in prosecuting these behaviors “that occur frequently in sports stadiums and generate a feeling of insecurity and restlessness among the people who go to them.” The meeting took place after a banner against Real Madrid appeared and a doll with Vinicius’s shirt hung from a bridge near the Ciudad Deportiva de Valdebebas.
