Vinicius Junior suffered racial discrimination again.
Real Madrid drew 1-1 with Sevilla in the 10th round of the 2023-24 Spanish La Liga season held at Ramon Sánchez Pizjuan in Seville, Spain at 1:30 a.m. on the 22nd (Korean time). Real, with one point, maintained first place in the league.
Real gave up the lead midway through the second half through David Alaba’s own goal, but soon balanced the score with Dani Carvajal’s equalizer. There were several good opportunities on this day, but it was disappointing for Real that they were unable to score an additional goal. In the meantime, the fact that Girona scored three points and tied Real on points is also not good for Real.
There were more bad things. Vinicius, the team’s key striker, suffered racial discrimination from a Sevilla fan. Multiple local media outlets reported that at the end of the second half, a Sevilla fan made a monkey-like gesture towards Vinicius. This was an obvious act of racism, and upon seeing this, Vinicius was enraged and went to the stands, threatening to clash, but fortunately the situation was resolved by the players’ dissuasion.
Sevilla’s response was good. After the match, Sevilla said in an official statement: “We condemn all acts of racism and xenophobia and will work closely with the authorities to ensure that action is taken. The fan concerned will be subject to the club’s robust internal disciplinary procedures. This will result in your membership being revoked,” they said, revealing their position and what kind of disciplinary action will be taken against the fan who committed racial discrimination.온라인카지노
“I would like to thank Sevilla for their quick response in another sad episode in Spanish football,” said Vinicius. “Unfortunately, I also came across another racist video. It was a video of a child, and it’s sad that there is no one to educate that child.” He said.
This is not the first time Vinicius has faced racial discrimination. Vinicius has been a consistent target of racial discrimination in recent years. In particular, in a game against Valencia last May, Vinicius got into an argument with a fan after racist remarks were made towards him, and was racially abused even before he was sent off. The situation was so serious that the Brazilian president at the time directly mentioned the incident.
However, even after that, the attitude of some fans did not change. Five months have passed since the Valencia incident, but Vinicius was once again subjected to racial discrimination.
