Victim of racist insults during the championship match between Valencia and Real Madrid, the Brazilian Vinicius Junior complained after the match on social networks. The president of La Liga, Javier Tebas expressed himself on Twitter. "Before criticizing and insulting the League, you have to inform yourself properly, Vinicius" stressed the boss of the championship. This did not please the 22-year-old striker who immediately responded.
"Once again, instead of criticizing the racists, the president of LaLiga appears on social media to attack me. You can talk and pretend not to read, but the image of your league is shaken. Look at the responses to his posts and be surprised... Refraining from doing so only puts you on the same level as the racists. I am not your friend to talk about racism. I want action and punishment. The hashtag does not move me."
Carlos Anchelotti, Real Madrid's boss did not hide his feelings after the game as he threw his support behind the Madrid attacker following his side's 1-0 away loss in Valencia on Sunday.
🔥 "C'est inacceptable : la Liga a un problème, ce n'est pas Vinicius le problème !"
