The Anti-Violence Commission in Spain has recently come up with a series of sanctions against a section of fans, for their gestures, racial insults and nazi salutes in the stands, during the September 18 clash between Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid, at the Civitas Metropolitano.
The game saw some sections of Atletico Madrid fans hurling racist chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr. And the Anti-Violence Commission has now hit the culprits with sanctions.
This has been reported by Diario AS, which suggests there have been a total of eight sanction proposals released by the body, including a €3,001 fine and prohibition of access to sports venues for six months for fans who performed the Nazi salute around the 43rd minute of the match.
Most of the fans were located around the Lower Stand of Fondo Sur. A similar fine has been levied against two fans, who hurled serious insults against opposition players, just after leaving their stands.
Another individual, who had pounced on a visiting fan, pushing and snatching his scarf, outside the stadium has been levied a fine of €3,001, along with a prohibition of access to stadium venues for six months
In a similar incident, a fan hit another opposing fan on the neck, outside the stadium. Meanwhile, another fan tried to enter the stadium while refusing the consume alcohol.
A glass of liquor was also thrown by one of the fans at a visitor. They have all been fined €3,001, along with a ban in sports venues for a period of six months.
In the final two sanctions, the Anti-Violence has exercised a fine of €1,500 to a couple of fans, one of whom refused to follow the instructions of the official in gate 39 while the other hurled serious insults to an official, just after the game ended.
Along with the fine, they have been barred from entering any sports venue across Spain for one month.
Ancelotti talks Courtois, Militao, Bellingham, VAR controversies ahead of Las Palmas vs Real Madrid
Coming off a highly controversial game against Almeria, Real Madrid will now travel to Gran Canaria to take on Las Palmas tomorrow as part of the early kick-off.
Carlo Ancelotti spoke about the clash tomorrow, starting off by confirming his goalkeeper for tomorrow, “Lunin will start tomorrow.”
He also added that Madrid were looking to get back to their usual level after back-to-back poor performances, one of which included elimination against Atletico Madrid in the Copa del Rey round of 16.
“We are motivated to return to our best level after 2 bad games.”
The Italian gaffer also commented on the biggest football story in the world today, which was Jurgen Klopp announcing his decision to leave Liverpool at the end of the season.
“It’s quite surprising, I understand. Working for a long time with the same club and players lowers your motivation a bit. He’s doing a fantastic job at Liverpool.”
And of course, Ancelotti also spoke about the leaked VAR audiovisual, some of which are highly controversial for all parties involved. Barcelona coach and players have also commented on the same, in light of the Negreira case.
“They have talked a lot. Everyone knows what has happened in the last 20 years in Spanish football. The Civil Guard is carrying out an investigations. That is the real problem of Spanish football.”
Luckily for the manager and fans, all injured players — minus the ACL trio of David Alaba, Eder Militao, and Thibaut Courtois — are available. Jude Bellingham is suspended, however.
“Everyone is available now after the recent period of injuries.”
“Making up for Bellingham’s absence tomorrow? Brahim and Joselu are available options. They were able to show themselves after I relied on them as substitutes,” he added.
And as far as Militao and Courtois are concerned, both of whom tore their ACL early in the season, Ancelotti suggested that they could make their return before the season ends.
“Courtois and Militão both have the option to play this season. The recovery process is going very well, they are training on an individual level. It is February and these types of injuries last 6-8 months, so I think they will recover before the end of the season.”
