Real Madrid lost 1-0 to Valencia in today’s La Liga clash.
The game was however marred as Vinicius Jr was again subjected to racist abuse.
The 22-year-old Brazilian was the subject of discriminatory abuse during the game and angrily singled out a spectator who had directed the racial comments towards him.
The game had to be paused at some point, and the referee came to speak to the fourth official and coaches on the touchline, before play was resumed again.
There were threats to abandon the game, but it went ahead.
Vinicius would later get a red card after he appeared to strike Hugo Duro following a melee inside the penalty area.
Speaking about the racist chants targeted at Vinicius, Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand, claimed that the Brazilian doesn’t get enough protection in Spain.
Ferdinand, also took to Instagram to criticise La Liga authorities for failing to protect the young winger.
He wrote on his story: “Bro you need protecting… Who is protecting Vinicius Jr in Spain?
“He receives a red card after being choked and receiving racial abuse during the game…wtf.
“How many times do we need to see this young man subjected to this shit? I see pain, I see disgust, I see him needing help… and the authorities don’t do shit to help him.
“People need to stand together and demand more from the authorities that run our game. No one deserves this, yet you are allowing it.
“There needs to be a unified approach to this otherwise it will be swept under the carpet AGAIN.”
Ferdinand then tagged several big players in the story, including Cristiano Ronaldo, Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and Jude Bellingham, before saying, ‘Everyone… stand together loud and proud.’
