What should be a moment of enjoyment for Vinicius Junior due to his excellent form on the pitch, is impossible for the Real Madrid attacker to enjoy due to the aggression he receives from the sides every time he plays away from home.
After repeated episodes of discrimination throughout the season, the Brazilian showed his weariness in the face of this aberrational situation during the clash against Valencia. Shortly after having exposed the racism that he suffered for several months, seven people were arrested.

Seven individuals arrested in Spain for being linked to hate crimes against Vinicius Junior
As reported by the Associated Press, the Spanish police arrested seven individuals accused of having committed hate crimes against Vinicius. Three were arrested in Valencia for alleged racial insults in the match last weekend, while the other four arrested are accused of hanging a doll of the soccer player on a bridge near the Real Madrid complex prior to a clash against Atlético in the Copa del Rey in January.
Undoubtedly, this is an important step to combat racism in the world of sport. Vinicius has been frequently attacked in different stadiums in Spain when playing away duels with Real Madrid. From now on, let’s hope that these events will not be repeated.
