Vinicius Junior Celebrates Prison Sentences: I Am a Tormentor of Racists

Real Madrid's Vinicius Junior reacts to the sentencing of three Valencia fans for racist abuse, declaring himself a "tormentor of racists."

Real Madrid forward Vinicius Junior responded to the sentencing of three Valencia fans to 8 months in prison for racially abusing him. The incident occurred during a La Liga match at the Mestalla Stadium in the 2022-2023 season.

The three fans admitted to directing racist insults at the Brazilian player, resulting in their imprisonment and a two-year ban from attending football matches.

Real Madrid's official account on the X social media platform (formerly Twitter) announced the verdict against the three Valencia fans.

Vinicius Junior quoted the post, writing on his personal account, "Many asked me to ignore it, and many others said I was fighting in vain."

The Brazilian international, with 29 caps and 3 goals for his national team, continued, "But, as I always say, I am not a victim of racism, (but) I am a tormentor of racists."

Vinicius Junior emphasized that "the first judicial ruling of its kind in the history of Spain is not for me, but for all black people."

The number 7 shirt holder added, "Perhaps other racists will be afraid, feel ashamed, and hide in the shadows, otherwise, I will be here to punish them."

Vinicius Junior concluded his post, written in Portuguese, by thanking the Spanish League and Real Madrid for helping him "obtain this historic ruling."
