Real Madrid condemns the racist abuse of Vinicius & Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has met with Vinicius Jr to show support in the wake of Sunday’s vile incidents at Valencia.
The Brazilian winger faced racist chants from fans at the Mestalla during the La Liga match, with Vinicius Jr also sent off for slapping Hugo Duro in the closing stages of the 1-0 defeat.
Real Madrid reacted furiously to the way Valencia’s supporters treated their player, and have threatened legal action to ensure that their opponents are sanctioned for the racism.
Now the club has issued a video on Twitter of the meeting between Vinicius Jr and President Perez, to inform him of the steps being taken in his defense, and to show support and affection in the face of such a disturbing situation.
