Vinicius described the prison sentence of racist fans as historic

Jakarta (ANTARA) –

Vinicius Junior has welcomed the eight-month prison sentence handed down to three Valencia fans who made racist abuse towards the Real Madrid striker last year.

“This first criminal conviction in the history of Spain is not for me. It is for all black people,” Vinicius said as reported by AFP on Tuesday.

“Thanks to La Liga and Real Madrid who contributed to making this historic decision possible,” said the Brazilian national team striker.

On Monday (6/10), the Valencia District Court sentenced three Valencia fans after they were found guilty of making racist comments towards Vinicius.

“This sentence is good news for the fight against racism in Spain. It sends a clear message to all those who come to football stadiums and hurl insults: La Liga will find them and prosecute them and that they will face criminal consequences,” he said the La. Liga president, Javier Tebas.

The defendants, whose identities were not revealed, were found guilty and sentenced for violating moral integrity by racially motivated discrimination. The three fans were also banned from attending matches for two years.

The insult received by Vinicius occurred on May 21, 2023, when Real Madrid visited Valencia at the Mestalla Stadium.

At the start of the match, some fans hurled racist insults imitating monkey noises aimed at the Brazilian striker.

The match was then stopped when Vinicius approached the person hurling insults. Not long after, officers arrested several supporters identified as perpetrators of these insults.

In an official statement, Real Madrid said the three fans had admitted their mistake and sent a letter of apology to Vinicius, the club and anyone who felt harassed or offended by their behaviour.
