Barcelona winger, Raphinha has showcased his support for Real Madrid’s Vinicius Junior after the 22-year-old was the subject of vile racist attacks from fans at Valencia.
Vinicius was subjected to racial abuse during Real Madrid’s latest La Liga 1-0 defeat against Valencia at the Mestalla over the weekend.
The Brazilian attacker was also sent off in that game, a decision that has since been overturned.
The treatment that Vinicius received in that match has taken the football world by storm, with Raphinha now the latest football star to show his compatriot support.
After being substituted during Barcelona’s La Liga 3-1 away defeat against Valladolid on Tuesday, Raphinha removed his shirt to reveal a message that read (transcriber via GOAL):
“As long as the colour of the skin is more important than the glow of the eyes, there will be war.”
