La Liga and Barcelona investigating alleged racial abuse aimed at Real Madrid star Vinicius Jr

La Liga says they are investigating alleged racial abuse aimed at Real Madrid star Vinicius Jr during El Clasico match against Barcelona.

After Real Madrid’s victory against Barcelona on Saturday, Videos emerged on social media that showed some Barcelona fans racially abusing Vinicius Junior. Some reports suggest that a banana also was thrown at the Real Madrid star.

La Liga confirmed that they are investigating the incidents and are working with police to identify the culprits.

“La Liga has been working from the outset to identify the individuals involved in making racist insults and will file the relevant charges as is always the case,” a statement read.

“We are coordinating with the Mossos d’Esquadra and FC Barcelona.”

Barcelona also condemned racist abuse and announced that they are investigating the issue.

“FC Barcelona will always defend the values of football and sport such as respect for the opponent and we will investigate any racist insult that may have occurred this afternoon during the match against Real Madrid.”

Vinicius Junior often has been the subject of racist abuse in Spain. La Liga made at least nine complaints about racial abuse directed at Vinicius to a court in Barcelona last season.

Real Madrid star recently insisted that he will continue to fight against racism in Spain.

“I personally know that I am not going to change history, that I am not going to make Spain a country without racists, nor the whole world.

“But I know that I can change some things. So that those who come in the next few years do not go through this, so that children can have peace of mind in the future. For them I will do everything I can.”
