Casemiro’s message of support for Vinicius Jr

During a La Liga match against Valencia, the 22-year-old Brazil international tried to point out people in the crowd who he believed were abusing him. 

Vinicius was later sent off for the first time in the competition, for his involvement in an altercation between two sets of players, on what was clearly a challenging and emotional day for him.

Real Madrid’s young forward has been the target of racial abuse multiple times this season and Sunday’s incident has been condemned by the player, manager Carlo Ancelotti and the club, as well as many other leading voices in football.

Valencia have said they will take the ‘most severe measure possible’ as a club and La Liga is investigating the incident.
