Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has said he was willing to walk off the pitch with Vinicius Jr, if the Brazilian had decided to stop playing.

Courtois was pissed at the racial abuse his teammate suffered, and has revealed that he only stayed on  because Vinicius decided to continue playing.

“If Vini wants to keep playing, we keep playing, but if Vini says he’s not playing any more, I’m leaving the pitch with him, because we cannot tolerate these things,” Courtois told Movistar.

“(I feel) bad because there was an act of racism … I remember at the start, around the 20th minute there were monkey sounds, sometimes it’s hard to see if it is or not, (but) the first thing is that we cannot accept this, we cannot tolerate this.

“One day you will have to put a camera just focused on these people because the disgusting things you can hear are crazy.”
