Real Madrid winger, Vinicius Junior has claimed that LaLiga belongs to racists.
The Brazilian was sent off as Los Blancos lost 1-0 to Valencia on Sunday.
Vinicius was subjected to discriminatory chants from fans during the game.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side went a goal down 10 minutes before half time, with Diego Lopez tapping in what proved to be the winner.
Madrid pressed for an equaliser, but the game was paused for several minutes after Vinicius claimed to receive racist abuse from spectators sitting behind the goal.
The referee spoke to the fourth official and coaches on the touchline, before play was resumed again.
However, Vinicius was shown a red card after he appeared to strike Hugo Duro.
The player posted on his Instagram story after the match:
“It wasn’t the first time, not the second and not the third. Racism is normal in La Liga.
“The competition thinks it’s normal, so does the Federation and the opponents encourage it. I am so sorry.’
“The championship that once belonged to Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Cristiano and Messi, today belongs to the racists.”
