Thus, the white club appreciates the “numerous expressions of affection, solidarity and affection received from all parts of the world towards our player Vinicius Junior” and condemns “the attacks of hate and racism” and calls for them to be “eradicated from our society forever” regarding what happened yesterday at the Mestalla stadium.

The club is especially grateful to “the highest authority in world football, the president of FIFA Gianni Infantinowhich has said that the parties where these hate crimes are committed should be stopped and suspended”.

It also has tokens of appreciation for the president of Brazil, Lula Da Silva“who asks that serious measures be taken to combat this problem and whose victim is, as he has said, “a young man who succeeded in life and who is becoming one of the best soccer players in the world”” reads the statement.

And he continues: “His colleagues have also shown solidarity and support towards Viniciusboth those of real Madrid like the rest of the teams in the world. Legends, players and coaches, some of them as significant on the international scene as they are Ronaldo Nazario, Mbapp, Rio Ferdinand, Neymar, Kak, Jadon Sancho, Lineker, Roberto Carlos or Casemiroamong dozens and dozens of world soccer figures”.

The club demonstrates the international coverage of “the unfortunate events that occurred”: “They have gone around the world and shame our football, as they are reflected and denounced in the major international media. Since the Washington Post either lquipeto cite just a few emblematic examples, strongly underline the serious problem of Spanish football”, he continues.

Finally, the real Madrid is “surprised” by the institutional declaration of this Monday in Las Rozas de Luis Rubiales. “Being as he is the maximum person in charge of Spanish football and of the refereeing establishment, he has allowed that forceful action has not been taken, according to FIFA protocols, to avoid the situation that has come to be. The image of our football is seriously affected damaged and deteriorated in the eyes of the whole world.

His passivity has contributed to the helplessness and defenselessness of our player Vinicius. The referees, far from acting firmly and applying the regulatory protocols, have chosen in most cases to inhibit themselves and avoid making the decisions that correspond to them. Just yesterday, the referee and those responsible for the VAR evaded their responsibilities and made unfair decisions based on incomplete images, which were not seen in their entirety, which were biased and which led to the direct expulsion of our player Vinicius Junior.

Unfortunately, what happened yesterday and the management that was carried out by the referees and the VAR, we do not perceive as something isolated, but rather as something that has been repeated in many of our matches. The victim who suffers it can never be held responsible for the crime.

For all these reasons, we see with great concern that from the Spanish Football Federation No measure has been taken in all this time, despite the obvious and repeated alarm signals that we have been denouncing from our club,” the statement said.

And he concludes: “The real Madrid hopes that, given the seriousness of the current situation and the image that Spanish football is being offered to the world, forceful and immediate action is taken by all those who have responsibility and powers to combat these scourges that are racism , xenophobia and hatred. Our club will continue to work so that the values ​​that have sustained our history continue to be a model of coexistence and exemplarity”.
