Real Madrid lodges complaint against referee over alleged racism towards Vinicius Jr

Posted : 19 March 2024

Real Madrid has lodged a formal complaint against the referee overseeing Saturday's match against Osasuna, accusing him of omitting reported racist abuse directed at forward Vinicius Jr from his official match report.


The club contends that referee Juan Martinez Munuera deliberately excluded instances of "insults and vexatious shouts" aimed at Vinicius during the game. This incident marks yet another instance of racial abuse suffered by Vinicius during his tenure in Spain, prompting Real Madrid to demand decisive action to combat such behavior.


In their statement, Real Madrid expressed disappointment over the referee's alleged failure to acknowledge the racial abuse directed at Vinicius, despite the players' efforts to highlight the situation during the match.


The club reiterated its firm condemnation of racism, discrimination, and hatred, calling for concrete measures to address and eradicate such violence. Real's stance underscores their commitment to ensuring the safety and well-being of their players, emphasizing the need for immediate action to combat racism in football.


Beyond the specific incident, Real Madrid has escalated their concerns by adding it to a broader complaint filed with Spanish legal authorities regarding alleged racist insults aimed at Vinicius by fans of Atletico Madrid and Barcelona.


This move reflects the club's proactive approach in addressing racism in football and seeking accountability from those responsible. As Vinicius continues to excel on the pitch, his experiences highlight the persistent challenge of combating racism in the sport, prompting calls for unity and decisive action from football's governing bodies and authorities.
