Real Madrid have issued a statement to condemn the racist abuse aimed at Vinicius Jr on Sunday against Valencia.

 

Real Madrid winger Vinicius Jr. Was racial abused by Valencia fans during their La Liga encounter yesterday.

The winger has since spoken on the incident, saying: “I’m so sad. The championship that once belonged to Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Cristiano [Ronaldo] and [Lionel] Messi today belongs to racism.”

 

On Monday, Madrid said: “Real Madrid CF shows its strongest revulsion and condemns the events that took place yesterday against our player Vinícius Junior.

“These facts constitute a direct attack on the coexistence model of our social and democratic State of law.

“Real Madrid considers that such attacks also constitute a hate crime, for which reason it has filed the corresponding complaint with the State Attorney General’s Office, specifically with the Prosecutor’s Office against hate crimes and discrimination, so that the facts can be investigated and clear responsibilities.

“Article 124 of the Spanish Constitution establishes the functions of the Public Prosecutor’s Office to promote the action of justice in defence of legality and the rights of citizens and the public interest.

“For this reason, and given the seriousness of the events that occurred, Real Madrid has turned to the State Attorney General’s Office, without prejudice to its appearance as a private prosecution in the proceedings that are being initiated.”
