Barcelona has not yet commented on Camps’ comments calling Vinicius a ‘clown’

Forty-eight hours after Barcelona Director and Deputy Spokesperson Mikel Camps tweeted that Real Madrid star Vinicius Junior “deserves to be slapped,” the Catalan club has not officially addressed the situation.

Reports suggest that Camps will escape being fired and will instead receive a mild punishment for the now-deleted tweet. This is unlikely to provide much comfort to Real Madrid and Vinicius, as Florentino Perez has chosen not to attend this weekend’s Clasico as a result of the incident.

On Thursday, La Liga President Javier Tebas addressed the controversy involving Camps. According to Diario AS, he seemed to question why Barcelona has not yet apologized to Real Madrid and Vinicius for the remarks.

“When someone makes a mistake and you delete it, it doesn’t cost anything to apologise. If he has removed it, it means that he didn’t like that he said what he said.”

Tebas also remarked on the apparent increasing tension between Barcelona and Real Madrid. Particularly in relation to Joan Laporta and Perez.

“I don’t know the relationship between them, although it has always been friendly. It does not affect La Liga. The circumstances are complicated, but it’s always better to get along. The important thing is the game.”

In 2023, Barcelona and Real Madrid have already experienced significant discord off the field due to the ongoing Negreira case. This recent episode has undoubtedly intensified the friction between these two historic rivals.
