Racism has come to the surface once again.
British media “Tribuna” quoted a report by “The Athletic” on the 19th (Korea time), saying, “Atletico Madrid fans shouted racist slogans against Vinicius outside the stadium just before the Madrid derby.”
Atletico Madrid defeated Real Madrid 4-2 in the round of 16 of Spain’s Copa del Rey in the 2023-24 season at Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid, Spain, on the 19th after a bloody battle in overtime.
Atletico Madrid led the way with Samuel Linu’s opening goal in the 39th minute. However, Jan Oblak scored an own goal in the extra time of the first half, and the game went back to square one. Alvaro Morata scored again in the 12th minute of the second half, but the match between the two teams led to extra time as Hoselu scored the equalizer in the 37th minute of the second half.
Here, Atletico Madrid decided the match. Antoine Griezmann scored the winning goal in the 10th minute of extra time, and Rodrigo Rikelme sealed the match in the 14th minute of extra time to secure a place in the quarterfinals.
But even before the joys of the Madrid derby victory were over, Atletico Madrid were under fire for its racism. Before the match, Atletico Madrid fans chanted racist chants as a group outside the stadium, “Viniscius, you are a monkey.”
Recently, the Spanish soccer community is suffering from racism. Especially, racism against Vinicius, the ace of Real Madrid, is especially severe. 월카지노도메인
Atletico Madrid fans had already sparked controversy in January last year over racism by hanging Vinicius doll’s neck from his leg. Spanish prosecutors demanded four years in prison for the fans. In May, Valencia’s home fans shouted racist slogans against Vinicius during a match. Vinicius raised anger, and the La Liga secretariat imposed heavy punishment on Valencia’s side.
Spain is trying to eliminate racism, but racism continues to this day.
