After the world saw and heard various racist chants directed at Vinicius Junior last evening, La Liga are at long last starting to move on the matter.
The previous evening various recordings rose up out of outside the Civitas Metropolitano which showed Atletico Madrid fans reciting “Vinicius is a monkey.” Those chants continued within the stadium during the match.
As indicated by Isaac Fouto of Cadena Adapt, La Liga are compiling evidence of last night’s events into a report to send to the Anti-violence Commission. That commission is in charge of dealing with cases of discrimination of any sort.
As well as the racist chants heard against Real Madrid’s Vinicius, chants of “Vinicius, die,” were also heard and will be included in the report.
Regardless of the report, the test of how serious La Liga are about the matter will be in the action taken after it. Atletico Madrid also have a history of turning a blind eye to various despicable actions from a section of their fans.
