After having been subjected to racist abuse by football agent Pedro Bravo, Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr has been targeted with vile chants by a section of Atletico Madrid supporters ahead of the derby.
COPE reports that several Rojiblancos fans hurled racist chants toward the 22-year-old Brazilian outside the Civitas Metropolitano with the match set to get underway in less than an hour.
Vinicius has been the talk of the town over the past few days after his dance celebrations were criticised by some sections. Things took a bad turn when Pedro Bravo passed comments with racist connotations against the Brazilian international.
Following the incident, the Real Madrid superstar has received a huge wave of support from the entire footballing community. But, he has once again been targeted with racist chants by the supporters of Atletico Madrid in a vile act.
The report states that hundreds of Los Rojiblancos‘ supporters aimed the vile remarks at Vinicius as the buses of the two teams entered the stadium.
There is no room for racism, not only in football but in any walk of life. Hopefully, the authorities identify and take action against those involved in the inexcusable and intolerable act outside the Civitas Metropolitano.
Real Madrid maintain full confidence in Turkish starlet despite injury woes
Arda Guler’s Real Madrid stint has not gotten off to the start he would have hoped to have given the expectation that preceded the transfer.
Having joined in the summer after Real Madrid outbid their competition to win him over from Fenerbahce for a 20-million-euro fee, buzz was high as the winger was expected to slot into the team quite seamlessly, albeit on a rotational basis.
Unfortunately for the 18-year-old, he has been constantly marred by injuries since completing the move.
Reports have stated that after Guler picked up his third injury since his move, Real Madrid have been concerned and want to take things slow with the player to ensure he is fit as soon as possible after an injury to his quadriceps this time.
The Turk is yet to make his competitive debut for the club, and Real Madrid even sacked their medical chief in November, in light of their injury crises since the beginning of the season.
No loan deal for Guler
However, according to Fabrizio Romano in a recent YouTube video, he states that Madrid maintain full trust and patience in the youngster.
Despite his bad luck with injuries, the latest of which he is scheduled to return from after Christmas, the Galacticos have no intention of loaning out Guler to Turkish clubs despite lots of speculation of them doing so of late.
Romano states that Madrid remain firm on not shaking things up too much with the squad, and they want to keep their roster stable, including Arda Guler.
They want to extend their full support and protection to the player as he aims to return to full fitness and finally make his bow for Madrid either by the end of this month or in 2024.
