‘If Vinicius tells me he doesn’t want to play, I’ll leave too’ – Real Madrid star after more racism
According to the report from football-espana, it is reported that Real Madrid star Vinicius Junior has been backed by his teammates following yet more deplorable treatment for the Brazilian during their clash with Valencia
It was the tenth occasion where an official complaint has been filed for racism towards the Brazilian, in addition to the incident which saw an effigy of Vinicius hung from a bridge. After the match, Thibaut Courtois was one of many teammates who came out with messages of support for his colleague, with manager Carlo Ancelotti also furious after the match.
“Someday you have to put a camera focusing only on those people. They have made gestures of all sorts to me too… today’s football is going to the ground to insult and not to cheer for teams. If ‘Vini’ had told me that he didn’t want to play, I would have left the pitch with him.”
“At one point he said he was stopping, and then that he was continuing on. I would have gone with him because it is something that we cannot tolerate.”
