After the racist scandal in Valencia, where the main actor was the Valencia fans who insulted Vinicius Jr, a lot of noise was raised in the world. A large number of football players decided to publicly support the Brazilian and emphasize that such things should no longer be allowed on football fields.
The great footballer of Juventus, Paul Pogba, also expressed his support for Vinicius Jr. The Juventus midfielder believes that if no one reacts, they should take matters into their own hands. “It's not the first time, it won't be the last either,” -Paul Pogba wrote on Instagram.
“But we must never let that pass again.
We have so many examples and I think we all agree today that nothing has changed since then.
Bananas, animal noises, songs against us? It's mental illness and I think we all agree that neither ads nor slogans will change these people.
If I've learned one thing this year, it's that when someone has a black heart, nothing and no one can change that.
If the institutions don't want to find a real solution, let's try to do it by ourselves, for ourselves.
Vinicius Junior full support bro”.
La Liga president Javier Tebas sparked outrage after responding to Vinicius Jr's post. Tebas is against such things, but it is also obvious that he resents Vinicius Jr who did not show up at several meetings to which he was invited.
“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 wrote and responded to Vinicius' post.
Such scandals are becoming an increasing problem, and the organization's leaders will have to react to this.
