Vinícius Jr. targeted with racist chants by Atlético fans

A section of Atlético Madrid supporters made use of the club’s meeting with Inter Milan on Wednesday to take aim at Real Madrid star Vinícius Jr, by way of a frankly despicable chant.

Diego Simeone’s troops are of course currently locked action, on the continent.

After being put to the sword by a goal to nil in Italy, Atlético have welcomed the aforementioned Inter to Spain’s capital, with a place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League on the line.

Those inside the Wanda Metropolitano have cooked up an absolutely intense atmosphere, aiding their side’s endeavours to take proceedings to extra time courtesy of a 2-1 advantage on the night.

And yet, as alluded to above, prior to kick-off in Madrid, one small section of the Rojiblancos faithful took things a step too far.

After Real Madrid wide-man Vinícius Jr. was targeted by a group of Barcelona fans in Catalunya on Tuesday, the Brazilian was again at the centre of abusive chants this evening, on this occasion as follows:

“Ale, ale, ale, Vinicius chimpanzee”
