Brazilian striker breaks down after being asked about racism in Spain

 

The Brazilian striker Vinicius Junior couldn't hold back his feelings of sadness, and he cried. The tears broke out when the Brazilian and Real Madrid player was asked about the racist treatment he received while playing in the Spanish La Liga. The five-time World Champion Brazil will have a trial with Spain at Santiago Bernabeu, Real Madrid's home stadium, on Wednesday(27th March). This is where Vinicius has been pursuing his career since 2018, "I just want to play football, but it feels really difficult. The desire to play continues to decrease," said Vinicius in a press conference ahead of the Spain versus Brazil match, as quoted by The Guardian, "I will survive. In this way, the racists will see my face more and more often," said Vinicius.

"I'm a brave player, I played for Real Madrid. We won a lot of titles, and that's not very popular with many people." "I will stay here, play for the best club in the world, score goal after goal, and win titles. Like it or not, they will continue to see my face for a very long time," he stressed. Previously, Dani Carvajal spoke about racism in Spanish football. 

According to the Spanish full-back and Vinicius' partner at Real Madrid, Spain is not a racist country."I think Spain is not a racist country. Integration here is very high. I come from a simple area, Leganes, and grew up with friends from various nationalities. I have many friends with different skin colours," said Carvajal. "Unfortunately, there are people who go to football matches to vent their anger. When someone feels hurt by that action, they end up doing it again, and that's unfortunate."

"People like that should not be allowed into the stadium because racism is the worst thing that exists in sport," he added. Last week, Brazil's new coach, Dorival Junior, also spoke about Vinicius' situation. According to the 61-year-old head coach, the perpetrators of racism against Vinicius should have been traced if the authorities were serious about doing so. "This is the same as in our country, where many, many people suffer every day.

However, they cannot say anything because the existing authorities are not effective and efficient [in carrying out their duties]," said Dorival Junior. Rodrygo, Vinicius' teammate in Brazil and Los Blancos, also expressed the same thing. According to him, all of this could be suppressed if there were strict punishments for the bandits. "The situation will change when they start punishing those culprits. However, as long as there is no punishment, this will continue," said Rodrygo.
