Real Madrid Castilla player Vinícius Tobias racially abused during match

During Sunday’s playoff match between Eldense and Real Madrid Castilla, Castilla player Vinícius Tobias was racially abused, report AS.

As the 19-year-old Brazilian picked up the ball on the sideline to take the throw-in, a young boy (no more than 12) in the section of the ground behind him was seen shouting “puto mono” (f*cking monkey) in his direction.

After the match, the young full-back took to social media to say the following:

“The saddest thing is that you never expect something like this from a child. A child yelling ‘monkey’!”, he wrote on Instagram, sharing the television image where the child can be seen yelling in his direction.

He added: “It is sad to see players suffering this type of prejudice. It’s neither the first nor the second time it’s happened; it’s a daily occurrence and you can’t imagine how much it hurts. It has to end, the limits have been exceeded. Skin colour means nothing, we are all the same. We want respect. This is the minimum!”
