Soccer fans have competed against Atlético fans. Many people have criticized the racists on social media. A tweet about Atletico asking if your fans are that ugly.
Atlético have also come forward against the actions of the fans. The club asked fans not to abuse their opponents and not to behave rudely. There are also reports that it was announced during the game that the abuse against Vinicius should stop.
The abuse against Vinicius Junior started on the last day.
Viny celebrates every goal he scores with a dance. Be it in Brazil or Real Madrid. When a goal is scored, whether at home or in away games, the samba rhythm that is part of Brazilian culture is sung.
Brazilian superstar Neymar and other stars are doing this. But recently Pedro Bravo, the president of the Spanish football agents, made a racist comment against Vinicius in a TV show.
He said that Vinicius should respect his opponents and if he wants to play dance, he should go to the Sampadromo in Brazil. Bravo had said that Winnie should respect his teammate and stop monkey from playing. This created a huge uproar in the football world.
Vini himself came out reacting strongly against this. “Usually the responses to this kind of thing always end with an apology or ‘I was misinterpreted.’ But racist, I repeat to you, I will not stop dancing. “I will play wherever I feel, be it the Sambadrome or the Bernabeu!”, Vinnie’s response was.
Football legend Pele also came out to support Vinicius.
