Speaking to Movistar+, Atletico Madrid captain Koke has issued a warning to Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr ahead of the derby later this week.

Vinicius has made a blistering start to the season and has taken over the mantle of Real Madrid’s main man in attack in the injury-enforced absence of Karim Benzema.

However, he has been attracting criticism from some sections due to his occasional showboating and the dancing celebrations he brings out when he scores.

In their last La Liga match against RCD Mallorca, the opposition players targeted him and kept fouling him repeatedly as they tried to get into his head.

Tempers always tend to flare in Madrid derbies and the atmosphere at the Civitas Metropolitano will be hostile as Real Madrid look to extend their 100% record this season.

And, Koke was quizzed about how he thinks Atletico Madrid supporters would react if Vinicius brought out his dancing celebrations should he score on the day.

In response, the Rojiblancos skipper admitted that everyone has their own way of celebrating, but there could be problems if Vinicius dances in front of the away supporters.

“Everyone has their way of being and celebrates the goals as they want. But there will be trouble, for sure,” Koke said.

Real Madrid have won all of their fixtures across all competitions this season and are currently seated at the top of the La Liga table. Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid have made a mixed start to the campaign and will be targeting the derby to turn their fortunes around.

Jose Felix Diaz has reported via MARCA that Real Madrid want a major change in the Spanish refereeing system.

The reporter writes that the team from the Spanish capital has taken the issue as their top priority mostly because of what happened in the recent derby defeat against Atletico Madrid

Los Blancos are determined to relentlessly steer a significant overhaul of the refereeing structure, and they have no intention of resting in their pursuit. 

Their discontent comes not only from recent events, particularly the contentious derby match but also from a deep-seated frustration with the state of refereeing itself.

Real Madrid not hiding their discontent

The journalist mentions that Real Madrid are unapologetic about their continuous criticism of the refereeing community, firmly believing that a transformation is of utmost importance.

Even prior to the emergence of the Negreira case, the Merengues had been vocal about their dissatisfaction with those responsible for overseeing the refereeing unit. 

For what it is worth, the revelation of the former vice president of the CTA’s financial ties to Barcelona only solidified Real Madrid’s resolve to advocate for a complete overhaul in referee management.

Real Madrid are suspicious

Real Madrid firmly assert that any influence from Negreira’s historical decisions in certain key positions raises suspicions about the fairness of the competition. 

For that, the management will do everything in its power to achieve a certain level of transparency within the organization that it believes is currently overshadowed by historical baggage.

As of today, Real Madrid continue to voice their concerns through their official channels.

Right now their ultimate goal is to eliminate the involvement of Clos Gomez in VAR decisions, marking the beginning of a long-standing battle they are fighting.
