Real Madrid’s scathing response

Since the game against Mallorca, a curious debate has taken place in Spain about Vinicius. A debate that turned into a controversy.

Author of 5 goals and 3 assists in 8 games this season, Vinicius Junior was able to respond to the challenge presented to him to confirm that he is now one of the best players on the planet. The Madrid player leaves no one indifferent and this football-loving Brazilian is apparently too expressive for the most fragile minds. Especially among his opponents.

“Let him stop playing the monkey”

Indeed, after the events against Mallorca and before the Madrid derby, Koke caused controversy by saying that “it would go wrong” this Sunday if Merengue were to celebrate a goal as they usually do, namely with a few dance steps. . The captain even added that it would be “normal”, anticipating and thus justifying possible overflows from his supporters against Vinicius.

Since then and as always in Spain, a debate has taken place on Spanish television sets: is Vinicius Junior a provocateur? Some say no, others say yes, but it doesn’t matter because everyone is entitled to think what they want. The problem comes when we hear on the sets of El Chiringuito that “If Vinicius wants to dance the samba, let him go to the sambadrole. In the field, you have to respect your colleagues and stop playing the monkey.”

Statements by Pedro Bravo, president of the Spanish association of players’ agents on the set of the program presented by Josep Pedrerol. Words that do not pass obvious and which have aroused a wave of indignation. Usually discreet and preferring to stay away from controversy, Real Madrid could not remain without acting this time.

Indeed, the club reacted in the evening through a press release, providing a strong response to defend its new star. “Real Madrid CF rejects all types of racist and xenophobic expressions and behavior in the world of football, sport and life, such as the regrettable and unfortunate comments made in recent hours against our player Vinicius Junior.

Real Madrid want to give all their support and affection to Vinicius Junior, a player who understands football and lives it with joy, respect and fair play.

Football, the most global sport that exists, must be an example of these values ​​and of coexistence. The club has instructed its legal services to take legal action against anyone making racist remarks towards our players,” the Madrid club wrote on its website.

In the process, Pedro Bravo, the author of the statements in question, wanted to apologize “sincerely” to Vinicius, explaining that he had no intention of making such comments.
