‘Country of Racists’ – Vinícius hits out at Laliga after alleged abuse

The Madrid man received his marching orders for pushing Hugo Duro in a brawl before referee Ricardo De Burgos Bengoetxea showed him the red card after going to VAR.

“The prize that the racists have won was by sending-off me, it’s not football, it’s LaLiga,”

Vinícius posted in a story on his official Instagram account, pointing, as Carlo Ancelotti did later, to the organization presided over by Javier Tebas.

Minutes after the first post, Vinícius again took to social media to amplify his message of condemnation and branded LaLiga as racist: “It wasn’t the first time, nor the second, nor the third.

Racism is normal in LaLiga.

The competition thinks it’s normal, the Federation thinks it’s normal and the opponents encourage it.

The league that once belonged to Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Cristiano and Messi, today belongs to the racists.

“A beautiful nation, which welcomed me and which I love, but which agreed to export to the world the image of a racist country.

I am sorry for those Spaniards who disagree, but today, in Brazil, Spain is known as a country of racists.

And unfortunately, for everything that happens every week, I have no defense.

I agree.

But I am strong and I will go all the way against the racists.

Even if it is far away from here.”

Carlo Ancelotti also took to social media to back up what he said in his post-match.

“Today was a sad day at Mestalla, where a group of fans showed their worst side. It is time to stop talking and act forcefully. Racism has no place in football or in society.


After the game, both Valencia and Valencia captain José Luis Gayá , in a statement, condemned the racist insults hurled at Vinícius from the stands at Mestalla.

The Valencia defender wrote: “We condemn it and that’s what the cameras are there for.

If it’s clear who it was, I don’t think he should be allowed at a football ground anymore. Racist insults make no sense at all”.
