“It has to stop. It happens to us every day. It happens to many other people, for Vinnie but for others. They call him son of a bitch, crazy, let his father, his mother die.. . This is not a war, this is a game. It is at this moment, we have a great opportunity to stop it,” Ancelotti said on Tuesday ahead of Real Madrid’s match against Rayo Vallecano on Wednesday (5:30am GMT) Said, in which Vinicius will be suspended after the raid. He got the card on Sunday.
“It is an important moment to take drastic measures. Institutions have opportunities, especially now, to take radical measures on this important issue,” the Italian coach insisted.
“For me, this is a moment that everyone has to work on. We want to change this situation for everyone, it’s too bad for everyone, we love football, we love it, we hope Let’s make it as clear as possible… we’ll wait to see what happens. The most common thing for me is to take measures. Here I see the intelligence of the Federation and LaLiga, and the football fans, and the education, above all, of each one”, he explained.
“Condemning is not enough. We started condemning long ago. After condemning, you have to take action, and so far no action has been taken. This is a problem of racism and also of disrespect. There are countries where They don’t insult you. In England they don’t insult you, because they settled the issue a long time ago, in 1985, when they were kicked out of European competitions, that’s where they settled. There are no police at English league matches,” he said, comparing Spain to England.
“Here, it looks like they’re going to war, there’s a van in front of you, on the other side, on the other side, behind … what is this? In England, this issue has been settled a long time ago, harshly, Too harsh a measure, condemned “Carleto”, who also attacked the Spanish league’s “outdated” anti-caste protocols.
“The protocol is obsolete, I think so. The protocol had to be implemented when the bus arrived at the stadium, because that’s where the insults started. Two hours before the game, and this was not an isolated case,” said one of Valencia’s It was a different matter. Sure, there weren’t 46,000 people, but not one or two. The protocol has to start from there. If you start the protocol at minute 70, you’re wrong, you have to start it twice. Have to do it a few hours before the game, and then during the match party,” he said.
According to Ancelotti, “Spain is not racist, I also have to say that, but there is racism in Spain, yes, as in other places, and it has to end. Let everyone do their job.”
For his part, Vinicius, who according to his coach is “a little sad”, did not take part in this Tuesday’s group session in Valdebebas because he had a “knee problem”.
“He has suffered a concussion, he has not been able to train today. Now we are going to see what clearance he is going to get, we will evaluate whether he should be given a day off or not. If there are two games, I I’m leaving.” Give him a week off, and if it is only one game, no, he will start training to be ready for the game in Seville” on Saturday (5:00 pm GMT), explained Ancelotti, speaking to the federation’s disciplinary commission. Awaiting decision.
