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.

Following a solid end to his debut campaign at Real Madrid, Arda Guler is all set to play a key part for Turkey at the UEFA Euro 2024.

The 19-year-old wonderkid struggled with injuries during the first half of the last season at Real Madrid but eventually made the most of his chances towards the final phase of the campaign.

All in all, Guler finished the 2023/24 season with a tally of six goals from 12 matches, winning La Liga, Spanish Super Cup, and the UEFA Champions League.

Ahead of their Euro opener against Georgia next week, Turkey manager Vincenzo Montella gave an insight into how he plans to use the Real Madrid youngster – whether as a starter or from the bench, and his position.

“Arda generally played on the right wing in both Fenerbahçe and Real Madrid. If he played alone, he could be number ten, but for now, he seems to be closer to playing on the right wing,” said Montella (h/t Sporx).

On whether Guler is ready to start in the major European tournament, he added: “The most important thing is to be able to establish balance well. He played well in the last match, and we have the desire to start with him. However, I am still in the decision stage.”

So far, Guler has made seven appearances for the Turkish national team, in which he has netted one goal. And, he will be looking forward to adding to that tally at the Euros, whether he starts as a right-winger or a No. 10.
