Spain is divided and the case of racism, which has Vinicius, the Brazilian striker of Real as its victim, takes on a political, even international, dimension. It culminated with the turning off, for an hour last night, of Christ the Redeemer symbol of Rio de Janeiro, and with the intervention of the Brazilian head of state, Lula.
In Ancelotti's words, it had never happened that an entire stadium sang racist chants against a player, and that this was expelled for protesting. The stadium that of Valencia, Sunday evening, where Real was defeated 1-0. There is also a video of hundreds of Valencia fans shouting Vinicius a monkey.
Infantino condemns and recalls that Fifa has given the tools against racism: stopping matches, up to 0-3 at the table. But between Brasilia and Madrid the storm is breaking out. I love this country, but Spain, not Brazil, known as racist, Vinicius harsh accusation. President Lula intervenes, invoking serious measures by the Spanish authorities.
Real has filed a complaint to the judiciary for hate crimes. Those same hate crimes for which four Atletico Madrid ultras were arrested on Tuesday morning for having hung a mannequin hanged with the player's shirt from a bridge last January. The mannequin had appeared next to a banner on a bridge near the Ciudad Deportiva de Valdebebas, Real Madrid's sports centre, a few hours before the match Copa del Rey derby between the two teams from the capital, Atletico and Blancos.
The governor of Madrid, Ayuso, underlines: Spain is not a racist country. Q&A between Vinicius and Tebas, the president of La Liga. The championship that belonged to Messi and Ronaldo, today of racists, accuses Vinicius. Tebas replies: Spain and La Liga are not racist. Before you insult us, try to understand what we do against racism... If they don't explain it to you, we'll explain it to you again, since you didn't come to the meetings you asked for. The player doesn't agree: Once again, the president of La Liga attacks me instead of criticizing the racists: so he puts himself on the same level. Closing Tebas: There are only nine incidents of racism in the whole season and eight have involved Vinicius: we have always denounced those responsible. But we don't accept that our image is tarnished. In support of Vinicius many football aces, among these Mbapp: You are not alone. We are with you and we support you.
