Vinicius Jr racist abuse: Real Madrid file official complaint against Atletico Madrid

Real Madrid have launched an official complaint regarding the racist abuse against Vinicius Jr. The Spanish giants have filed their complaint with the Attorney General’s office and are seeking punishment for chants in games where they were not even involved.

Atletico Madrid fans were seen chanting racial abuses at the Brazilian ahead of their game against Inter Milan in the Champions League Round of 16. The winger has been targeted by away fans from across Spain, most notably Valencia. And even though the LaLiga has been putting in efforts to make Spanish football a hate-free space, the challenge to eradicate it altogether is still present.

Real Madrid asks the Prosecutor’s Office to request the security forces for the existing recordings in both locations in order to identify the perpetrators of such racist and hateful insults. Real Madrid condemns these violent attacks of racism, discrimination and hatred that have been taking place, unfortunately repeatedly, against our player Vinicius Junior.

Our club will continue to work in the defense of the values of football and sport, and will remain firm in its fight for zero tolerance in the face of episodes as disgusting as those that continue to occur in recent times”.
