“Given the information published regarding the alleged statement given in court by the footballer Vinícius Jr stating that the entire Mestalla stadium hurled racist insults at him in the match between Valencia CF and Real Madrid CF last season, the club wishes to express its surprise, rejection and indignation,” Valencia lamented in a statement.

In this sense, the Valencian team stressed that, as the Madrid coach, Carlo Ancelotti, “publicly recalled,” “in no case can the behavior be generalized to the entire Mestalla stadium.”

“The club is fully aware of the seriousness of this matter. Racism has no place in football or in society, but it cannot be fought with fallacies or unfounded lies. This issue requires the involvement of everyone and “Valencia CF understands that we must be scrupulously precise and responsible in this type of demonstration,” the ‘Che’ team warned.
