The winger of Real Madrid, Vinícius Jr. broke the silence by taking his social networks to talk about what happened this Sunday at the Mestalla Stadium against Valencia CF, after he was the victim of racist chants by local fans.
Through a post exposed on Instagram and later replicated on Twitter, Vinícius Jr. assured that La Liga has been complicit in the situation and that it is their fault that racism continues in Spain.
“It was not the first time, nor the second, nor the third. Racism is normal in La Liga. The competition believes that it is normal, the Federation also and the opponents encourage it. I’m sorry. The championship that once belonged to Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Cristiano and Messi today belongs to racists,” said the Brazilian.
He later assured that it is unfortunate how a nation that gave him a home and shelter is involved in this situation, adding that today Spain is known to the world as a “country of racists,” he added.
Finally, Vinícius declared that even if the whole situation is against him, he will continue to fight so that these racist acts end once and for all.
“I am strong and I will go the distance against racists. Even if it’s far from here“He concluded, leaving a possible departure for Real Madrid in the air in the event that the racist acts continue.
