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.

U-turn? Benzema hints at Real Madrid stay during ceremony: “Reality is not the internet”

There has been a lot of talk around Karim Benzema’s situation over the course of the last week or so, with reports claiming that the Frenchman was on his way out of the Santiago Bernabeu.

With his contract expiring at the end of the season, it was reported that Benzema was joining Al Ittihad as part of an incredible deal worth nearly €200 million. The striker was also offered 100% of his image rights and advertising deals by the Saudi government.

Over the last day or so, it has been reported that the move is all but official at the moment, as Benzema has accepted the offer, and will soon inform Real Madrid about it.

Benzema was awarded the MARCA Leyenda awards for contribution to sports today, and speaking during it, he dropped a rather cryptic message about his future – one that says quite the opposite to what has been in the news recently.

“Speak to the fans? Speak about what? Why should I speak of the future if I’m in Madrid?”, Benzema said.

“It’s the internet speaking, and reality is not the internet,” he added.

This certainly falls away from the departure line for Benzema, who was reportedly already contemplating his life away from Madrid.

At first, though, he was hesitant about speaking about his future, saying, “Staying or leaving Real Madrid? At the moment, I’m here…we have a game on Saturday.”

He repeatedly talked about the fans, calling them the best in world football. He also said, “I know how much Real Madrid fans love me. I feel that when I’m on the pitch, I give my best for them, always.”

“I always say that we play with 11 on the pitch but also with a crucial factor, Real Madrid fans,” Benzema concluded.
