The decision to lift the suspension of the Brazilian Vinicius Junior, winger of the Real Madrid team, caused a wide resonance in the sports environment, especially among Barcelona fans, against the backdrop of the suspension of Polish star Robert Lewandowski.
And the competitions committee of the Spanish Football Federation made a decision regarding the crisis of racism faced by Vinicius Junior during the Valencia match against his guest Real Madrid (1: 0) last Sunday in the 35th round of the league “La Liga” .
The match saw unfortunate events, presented in racist chants against Vinicius, before he faced the batsmen at the end of the match to receive a red card in the seventh minute, calculated in place of lost time for the confrontation.
And it was decided to punish Valencia with a partial closure of the stadium for a period of 5 matches, specifically the Mario Kempes stadium, from which racist statements were heard, with a fine of 45 thousand euros imposed on the club. .
What caused controversy, however, was that the Competition Committee decided to annul the red card that Vinicius received “in a strange way” after watching all the video clips of the match, according to press reports, so that he could compete against Rayo Vallecano. Today is Wednesday.
And VAR video technology showed that Vinicius slapped Valencia player Hugo Duro, prompting the referee to issue a red card to the Brazilian.
And the newspaper Mundo Deportivo sounded the alarm, pointing out that the lifting of Vinicius’s exclusion means that, in the face of similar future measures, clubs can claim this decision as a precedent, since in the event of a punch, the player is not penalized due to the presence of a previous attack, physical or verbal.
Spaniard Javi Hernandez, Barcelona coach, came out to announce his refusal to lift Vinicius’s exclusion despite his solidarity with the brown boy in the crisis of racism he is suffering from in Spain.
Xavi said in statements at a press conference after Barcelona’s match against Valladolid (1-3) yesterday, Tuesday, about the lifting of Vinicius’ exclusion: “Racist behavior is one thing, but assault is another. That’s why I’m surprised. that the punishment has been lifted.
Much of traditional rivals Barcelona’s supporters have also expressed surprise at Vinicius’ exclusion being lifted, with the incident being compared to what happened to Catalan striker Robert Lewandowski last December.
The Polish star was suspended for 3 matches after receiving a second warning after being violently interfered with during his team’s match against Osasuna on 8 November in the 14th round of the Spanish league.
Robert Lewandowski, 34, missed the match after being sent off after receiving two yellow cards, in addition to two matches for contempt and contempt for the referees, as he gestured to touch his nose as he left the field. which was considered an insult to referee Jesús Gil Manzano.
A number of Barcelona fans claimed on social media that the move caused Lewandowski to be suspended for 3 matches and Vinicius went unpunished despite deliberately hitting a Valencia player.
Fans also mentioned what Vinicius did as he left the field as he provoked the Valencia fans and indicated that they would be relegated to the second degree before several Valencia players and members of the technical staff confronted him again.
