After being at the receiving end of more racist abuse during the match against Valencia, Real Madrid winger Vinicius Jr is ‘fed up’ and ‘at the limit’ reports Jose Luis Sanchez. The 22-year-old speedster wants to see action taken against the culprits and quickly so.
As has shockingly become the norm in La Liga this season, Vinicius was once again targeted with racist insults by Valencia fans at the Mestalla on Sunday night.
The Brazilian international has had to face such abhorrent behaviour in several away matches this term, as he did against Atletico Madrid, Real Valladolid, and Mallorca. But, there has been little to tangible action taken by La Liga or the RFEF to curb the racist attacks.
As such, the winger hit out at La Liga and its president Javier Tebas after the Valencia encounter, demanding actions from the body instead of statements and talks.
Now, it is being reported that Vinicius is at the end of his limit and has grown fed up with all the abuse he is receiving in La Liga.
The 22-year-old has not had to face any such issues in European competitions this season and Jose Luiz Sanches states that he has been told that the winger cannot stand it any longer.
The issue has been persisting for a long time and the Real Madrid superstar now wants to see action taken against it right away.
Earlier today, manager Carlo Ancelotti spoke about Vinicius and his mental situation currently, saying: “Yes, he’s very sad. But he knows that he has the support of everyone, not just Madrid. It’s unconditional support… even rivals!”
Amid some reports that Vinicius might consider leaving Real Madrid if the situation does not change, the manager assured that it is not the case, as he said: “No, I don’t think so. Vinicius loves football and Real Madrid. His love for Real Madrid is very great and he wants to make a career in this team.”
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.
