On his official Twitter account, Vinicius made the following statement: “This event was not the first, second, or third. In the Spanish league, racism is commonplace.

“The league thinks it’s normal, and the federation also does it and cheers on the opponents,” he continued. I apologize profusely. Racists now own the championship that formerly belonged to Messi, Ronaldinho, Cristiano, and Ronaldo.

“Spain welcomed me, but it agreed to present an image of a racist country to the world,” he concluded. I’m sorry to the Spaniards who disagree, but in Brazil today, racism is associated with Spain.

“Unfortunately, I have no justification for what occurs every week,” he said in conclusion. I concur. But even if it’s far away, I am a strong person, and I will battle against bigots to the very end.

Notably, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti said during the game that Vinicius was called a monkey by Valencia supporters.

Vinicius Junior received a straight red card from the referee after getting into a fight with Hugo Duro of Valencia in the 90+8th minute.
