La Liga charges Vinicius Jr. with racism abuse claim
The La Liga said in a statement that abusive behavior has “no place in sport.” According to La Liga, Valladolid Magistrates’ Courts have received a criminal complaint for hate crimes that has been supported by video evidence posted to social media sites. It was emphasized by the league that it would step up efforts to “eradicate any kind of violence, racism, or xenophobia inside and outside stadiums.”
La Liga added that announcements would be made over the public address system. advertising hoardings surrounding the pitch to “combat and condemn racism” at locations thought to pose a risk of potential racist behavior in the stands. Racist slurs directed at Vinicius, a player for Brazil, were reported to the prosecutor’s office by La Liga in October 2021. The investigation into racist chants by Atletico Madrid supporters was shut down by Spanish prosecutors last month because it was impossible to identify those responsible.
