After the defeat against Valencia by 1-0 and the racism abuse towards Vinicius Junior., Carlo Ancelotti has decided to give the player a few days off. He also received a red card during the match.

As reported by the Spanish newspaper As, the coaching staff has been given at least two days so that the player can have a little more peace and get out of the media frenzy.


During and at the end of the match against Valencia, Vinicius received several racist chants and insults from a large part of the stadium, then in a riot of players, and after the VAR review, the player was sent off for a direct red card, which earned him more insults.

It was understood by Real Madrid that the player needs a break from everything that has happened and that is why they gave him a few days off, so that he is surrounded by his loved ones and can return to training in the best possible way.

Vini received support from footballers from all over the world and that has helped him in this difficult moment. Real Madrid, for its part, has made the corresponding complaint for discrimination and hopes that justice will act. The footballer asserted that these situations will not change his attitude.

“I will not give up. I have a purpose in life and if I have to suffer more so that future generations do not go through similar situations, I am ready,” he said yesterday. In Brazil, the lights that illuminate Christ the Redeemer went out as a sign of support for the Real Madrid footballer.

Given the absence due to the red card received and Mariano’s injury, Ancelotti summoned the Uruguayan Álvaro Rodríguez for today’s game where Real Madrid will face the other team from the capital, Rayo Vallecano.
