Vinicius, La Liga’s crazy decision

Spread the love

Excluded for a bad gesture last Sunday in Valencia, after being the victim of racism throughout the game, Vinicius will not be suspended.

While the racist shouting and chanting of Valencia supporters against Vinicius last Sunday is an international scandal, the Brazilian winger of the real Madrid saw his red card received at Mestalla removed by the La Liga Disciplinary Committee on Tuesday evening.

In the additional time of this stormy meeting, “Vini” was excluded for having slapped an opposing player, after the intervention of the video referees and the viewing of the images by the central referee.

But the Disciplinary Committee removed the red card, considering that the referee had not seen the whole general altercation. “During the procedure, an essential step would have been omitted “, can we read. Vinicius can thus play the meeting of the Merengues on Wednesday evening against Rayo Vallecano.

At the same time, the La Liga Competitions Committee sanctioned Valencia CF for “racism”, by closing the “Mario Kempes” stand for the next 5 matches. A fine of 45,000 euros was given.
