Valencia’s Spanish coach Robin Barajha rejected the accusations of Real Madrid’s Vinicius Junior to his club’s fans as well as Spain’s being racist, asking the Brazilian to show his respect, and at the same time pointing out that black players have always been part of the club’s history.
And the racist abuse Vinicius received at the Mestalla stadium last Sunday from some Valencia fans ignited the football world, which denounced what was condemned and expressed its solidarity with the young Brazilian player.
Baraja said on Wednesday, in response to what Vinicius said after the match and the days that followed: I condemn what happened at the Mestalla stadium on Sunday, and Valencia has always been against racism and its history is full of black players whom we respected, but I will not allow us to be described in unfair terms, and we will not be silent about this lack of respect. .
And he continued: It is unacceptable to accuse Vinicius of Spain of being racist, we must be respected, and I think that what the player said came as a result of post-match anger.
He concluded: Valencia acted immediately and put the matter in the hands of justice, so we deserve the least respect.
And the Spanish Football Federation canceled the red card that the player obtained in the match, and Valencia also punished him by closing part of his stadium for 5 matches and fining him 45,000 euros.
