In the wake of the scandal surrounding the racial abuse aimed at Real Madrid star Vinicius Jnr, the organisers of the Spanish League known as the LaLiga have published a list of abuses recorded at various grounds.
The Brazilian was subjected to racial abuse during his side’s 0-1 loss to Valencia with the fans of his opponent calling him a monkey. The issue has since gained global attention for the manner which it was handled.
Racist abuse has been a huge problem in the league and the body while rolling out measures that they have taken against such listed the banning of the fan who racially insulted Nigeria international Samuel Chukwueze.
Chukwueze while on duty for Villarreal in their 2-4 loss to Mallorca was constantly racially abused by a fan. The Nigerian scored in the game to bring scores to 2-2 before his side conceded two more goals to lose the game.
The fan in question was handed a three year ban from all football stadiums in the country by the body of the LaLiga and they said his case is one among six cases they have handled this season, and won’t hesitate to do the same to any one found wanting, when investigation into the Valencia incident is completed.
