Police are already investigating the incident to identify the perpetrators of “absolutely disgusting and intolerable acts that bring shame to society”, while LaLiga is demanding “the toughest criminal penalties” for those responsible for a hate crime
On the morning before the Copa del Rey quarter-final, Madrid woke up to a doll wearing Vinicius’ shirt hanging from a bridge at the Ciudad Deportiva del Real Madrid in Valdebebas. A banner reading “Madrid hates Real”, a signature motto of the Athletic Front, appeared next to the mannequin. However, the ultragroup of the rojiblanco team has distanced itself from this action on their social networks.
While the National Police are already investigating the incident to identify the alleged perpetrators of the events described by Atlético de Madrid as “absolutely disgusting and impermissible that disgraceful society”, the Higher Sports Council (CSD) will hand it over to the Anti-Violence Commission and LaLiga. demands “the most severe criminal penalties” for those responsible. Movement against intolerance filed a complaint with the prosecutor’s office this Thursday “for an alleged racist crime” against Vinicius “and its extension to Real Madrid.”
LaLiga also strongly condemned the acts of hate and harassment against Vinicius Jr. “Intolerance and violence have no place in our sport. From LaLiga, as on previous occasions, the investigation into the events will be urged by the state’s security forces and organs, seeking the conviction of those responsible and asking for the most severe criminal sanctions, “was the response of the organization led by Javier Thebe, before Atlético also denounced the “hate message” launched at the Bernabéu hours before the derby dispute.
“Our condemnation of any act that violates the dignity of people or institutions is resounding and without palliatives. The rivalry between the two clubs is maximum, but also respect. No individual, regardless of his intentions or color, can tarnish the coexistence of different hobbies. It is everyone’s responsibility to prevent this. We do not know the author or authors of this despicable act, but their anonymity does not evade their responsibility. We hope that the authorities can clarify what happened and that justice will help to eradicate this kind of behavior,” claimed the rojiblanco club led by Enrique Cerezo.
This is the last attack against the Brazilian star of Real Madrid by Atlético radicals, as in this season’s league match at the Metropolitan, the mattress ultras uttered racist chants against him in the outskirts of the stadium. Insults were also heard at the meeting against the ’20’ Real Madrid player who was denounced by LaLiga: “Vinicius, you are a monkey” or “Vinicius, die.”
