Raíllo: "Vinicius uses the wild card of racism when he is branded a provocateur"

Vinícius Junior's name has been around since the controversy broke out at Real Madrid-Mallorca three weeks ago. The Madrid forward's constant provocations throughout the match were not liked at all, but his unsportsmanlike attitude was overshadowed by some embarrassing statements by a representative on a television program in which he urged the white player not to "play the monkey" .

The following days the focus of attention was taken by the debate on racism. Real Madrid issued a statement supporting the player and Vinícius himself shared a video in which he made a profound reflection on racism in football. Many footballers, especially Brazilians, also showed their support for him publicly with comments on social networks in which they encouraged the striker to continue dancing in his goal celebrations.

Weeks later, it seemed that the matter had been buried, but this Tuesday the Diario de Mallorca reopens the matter in an interview with the vermilion footballer Antonio Raíllo. “Vinicius who dances but does not miss, who does not insult and does not belittle his colleagues; then when he is called a provocateur he uses the joker of racism, ”said the central defender of the Mallorcan team.
