The Italian assures that “Spain is not a racist country but there are situations that occur and that have to end”
Carlo Ancelotti He left Mestalla very angry this Sunday, after what happened with Vinicius. So it was to be expected that his appearance would revolve around the issue that has gone beyond sports, and has become an international debate. The demands of the Italian coach were clear. Calls on institutions to act immediately, with special emphasis on LaLiga and the Federation. “I’m waiting to see what happens, hopefully something can happen. We want to turn this situation around, and it is in the hands of the League, the Federation and the education of each one”, remarked the coach.
Ancelotti said that in the team “we are concerned about what has happened.” Having said this, he also wanted to highlight his words from last weekend regarding the insults in Valencia. “When I refer to the Mestalla stadium I am not referring to 46,000 people, but to a group that he has behaved very badly.”
In addition, the Italian wanted to clarify something that has been widely commented after Vinicius’s statement in which he dismissed Spain as a racist country. Given this, Ancelotti assured that: “I am convinced that Spain is not racist but there are situations that happen and that have to end. I am a citizen and I do not have the obligation to take measures like other institutions”.
MEASURES TO APPLY
During the appearance, he was also asked about the current action protocol. Ancelotti had a very clear answer from him: “The protocol is outdated. If the referee has to apply it, it should have been applied when the bus arrived at the stadium, which is when the insults begin. The protocol has to start there, if they apply it in 1970 they have been wrong.”
The Italian also confessed that making statements condemning what happened is not enough. “A long time ago we condemned acts of racism, but after that you have to act. It is a problem of racism and insults. There are countries where they don’t insult you, in England for example,” said the coach.
Vinicius stays at Real Madrid
On how the player is, Ancelotti acknowledged that “Vinicius he is very sadtoday he has not trained because he has a little discomfort in his knee and we are waiting to know the sanction”.
The technician plans to give him a week of vacation if the sanction is two games or continue training if it is from a meeting.
Regarding the Brazilian’s future at Real Madrid, Ancelotti has no doubts. “Vinicius loves football and Real Madrid, in his thought is not leaving. His love for Real Madrid is very great and he wants to make his career and have the leading role in this club, “said the coach before the possibility that the player left the Spanish league.
