The entire footballing community is coming together to show support for Vinicius Jr after the winger was subjected to racist attacks once again during Real Madrid’s La Liga clash against Valencia.

The 22-year-old has been targeted by opposition fans on numerous occasions over the course of the campaign. The incidents have largely occurred in away stadiums in La Liga with the winger facing no such issues during matches in the UEFA Champions League.

Naturally, Vinicius lashed out at La Liga and its president Javier Tebas, asking them for actions and punishments against those involved in these vile incidents.

Vinicius has received a swell of support from his teammates for club and country, as well as opposition players and managers, with Barcelona boss Xavi among those condemning the attacks against him.

The presidents of FIFA and RFEF have also spoken out in support of Vinicius after what went down at the Mestalla last night.

And, earlier today, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez met with the former Flamengo wonderkid to speak to him and show his support for the youngster.

The Merengues’ president is understood to have assured Vinicius that the club will take every possible step to defend and support him and ensure actions are taken against those who targeted him with racial slurs during the Valencia clash.
