Real Madrid issued a statement regarding racism
Real Madrid have issued a racist statement following an incident against Valencia when midfielder Vinicius Junior was yelled at from the stands.
Real Madrid would like to express their gratitude for the countless expressions of love, solidarity, affection that have been sent to Vinicius Junior from all over the world. Hatred and racism in our society must be eradicated, as representatives of all sectors of society, as well as national and international organizations, speak about after recent events.
We are grateful to FIFA President Gianni Infantino, who declared that matches during which such crimes occur should be stopped, and to Brazilian President Lula da Silva, who called for serious action to solve the problem of which, as he said, “a young man who succeeded in life and growing into one of the best footballers in the world.”
News of the unfortunate events has traveled the globe and shamed our football into the mainstream international media and we were surprised by the comments of the head of the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF), Luis Rubiales, who did not allow decisive action to be taken in accordance with the protocols to stop the situation from developing . The image of our football has been seriously damaged, it has been damaged in front of the eyes of the whole world.
The inaction of the leader led to the helplessness and defenselessness of our player. Instead of taking drastic measures, the arbitrators in most cases preferred to avoid them, to distance themselves. Yesterday, the judges and their video assistants shied away from their duties and made unfair decisions based on incomplete records, which led to bias and the removal of Vinicius.
In view of the seriousness of the situation and the image of Spanish football that has been revealed to the whole world, Real Madrid hopes for immediate and decisive action by all those who are responsible and competent to fight the evils of racism, xenophobia and hatred, ”says a release from the Madrid club.
