March 25, (THEWILL) – Real Madrid and Brazil star, Vinicius Junior, emotionally revealed his declining desire to play football due to the incessant racist abuse he has faced.

In a poignant media appearance on Monday, the 23-year-old winger broke down in tears while recounting the harrowing incidents he has endured across various stadiums in Spain.

Despite the torrent of racist insults, Vinicius remains resolute, vowing not to abandon Real Madrid or Spanish football. “I will stay at the best club in the world, scoring as many goals as I can so they keep watching me,” he declared, refusing to yield to the perpetrators’ malicious intent. His decision stems from a principled stance against providing racists with the satisfaction they crave.

Tuesday’s friendly between Spain and Brazil at the Santiago Bernabeu assumes greater significance, carrying the “One Skin” motto to combat racism. Vinicius expressed his yearning for a world where people of colour could lead unhindered lives, allowing him to focus solely on his craft rather than confronting prejudice.

The forward’s harrowing experience underscores the persistent scourge of racism in football, a malignant issue that transcends borders and afflicts the sport globally.

Vinicius’ impassioned plea resonates deeply, serving as a rallying cry for concerted action to eradicate discrimination and foster an inclusive environment for all.

Vinicius’ candid testimony amplifies the urgency to combat racism systematically. This incident serves as a sobering reminder that more must be done to safeguard players’ well-being and uphold the fundamental values of equality and respect.
