Racism towards Vinicius: Real Madrid files complaint against the referee of the match against Osasuna


By: Manu Tournoux

Since his arrival at Real Madrid, this has unfortunately become the norm for Vinicius. Because of his spectacular play and his fiery temperament, the Brazilian winger arouses the ire of opposing supporters who easily fall into racism to make him unpin. An odious behavior which outrages the 23-year-old player who does not hesitate to display his dismay at the situation on social networks. Another event took place this weekend on the Osasuna pitch. Author of a double, the former Flamengo was the target of racist insults coming down from the spans of El Sadar. And while no sanction was pronounced following this meeting, Real Madrid stepped up to the plate this Monday evening and announced that it had filed a complaint against the referee of the match through a press release:

After the serious insults uttered, once again, against our player Vinicius Junior, in this case during the last championship match played by our team in El Sadar, Real Madrid CF communicates the following. Our club has filed a complaint with the Disciplinary Commission of the Royal Spanish Football Federation against match referee Juan Martínez Munuera, following the negligent drafting of the referee's report. This referee intentionally and deliberately omitted the insults and humiliating shouts repeatedly directed at our player Vinicius Junior, although he was emphatically warned by our players at the very moment they were occurring.»
