Vinicius Jr was racially insulted during the match with Valencia. This caused many reactions, as well as anger from the Brazilian, who is disappointed with the behavior of the Spaniards. This young footballer emphasized that there is a lot of racism in Spain and that it is necessary to solve this problem.
“It wasn't the first time, nor the second, nor the third. Racism is normal in La Liga,” -Vinicius wrote on social media.
“The competition thinks it's normal, the [Spanish Football] Federation does too and the opponents encourage it.
I'm so sorry.
The championship that once belonged to Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Cristiano and Messi today belongs to racists.
A beautiful nation, which welcomed me and which I love, but which agreed to export the image of a racist country to the world.
I'm sorry for the Spaniards who don't agree, but today, in Brazil, Spain is known as a country of racists.
Unfortunately, for everything that happens each week, I have no defence. I agree. But I am strong and I will go to the end against racists.
Even if far from here”.
Javier Tebas reacted
La Liga president Javier Tebas had an interesting response to Vinicius' tweet. Tebas warned Vinicius to think carefully about what he said, considering that he did not show up for the two meetings where they were supposed to discuss the subject.
“Since those who should explain to you what it is La Liga can and cannot do in cases of racism, we have tried to explain it to you, but you have not shown up for either of the two agreed dates that you requested yourself,” -Tebas replied.
“Before criticising and insulting La Liga, it is necessary that you inform yourself properly Vini Jr. Do not let yourself be manipulated and make sure you fully understand each other’s competencies and the work we have been doing together”.
The "war" between Vinicius Jr and Tebas continued on Twitter, and the young footballer had a reaction to what Tebas said. “Once again, instead of criticising racists, the president of La Liga appears on social media to attack me,” he replied on Twitter.
“As much as you talk and pretend not to read, the image of your championship is shaken.
See the responses to your posts and have a surprise.
Omitting yourself only makes you equal to racists. I'm not your friend to talk about racism. I want actions and punishments. Hashtag doesn't move me.
