This is on Rubiales, not Tebas. The league is run by a racist more interested in attacking a victim of racism to defend the league then showing support and trying to push for change - which is absolutely insane because one of Tebas' main goals for years has been increasing the powers of the league over the FA, and this was a golden opportunity to do just that. Alas - but the lack of response against racism is the FA's fault, not the league's. The league doesn't have that jurisdiction

La Liga and Serie A do not deserve to have a player like Junior playing in it. I cannot watch these leagues anymore. There is racism in France, Germany and the UK but at least when it happens there is an effort to stamp it out. I still remember the Brentford supporters applauding Saka....respect! Awesome supporters.

Guess Vini is right, if that is what the authorities are doing it just shows that Spain is a country with high tolerance level for racism

What is it with these people? It's like they're all reading from the same script.

"They aren't racist, the player provoked them and they decided that the best way to respond was by shouting racist things. If he didn't provoke them they would not have been racist."

What kind of crazy thinking is that? That's like a textbook definition of looking for an excuse to justify being racist
Yeah, but the way he provokes them is by scoring goals. All that he needs to do is stop scoring goals and the racism will dry up.

He also had the audacity to be a black man who didn't just keep his head down and know his place.

These fecking football fans, man. They're probably idiots in real life, haven't put in 1% of the effort into anything in their life like Vini has with football. A net deficit to society. They know they can't match up to the guy so they pull the same shit their dads or granddad's probably did; my skin is superior to your skin.

And their FA, the major authority for governance in their sport, thinks it's pretty much ok to do these things. In 2023. feck sake.

It's all vile. The idea that he will not play games to placate the racists is just unacceptable in a civilised world.

Four men were fined 60,001 euros (£51,700) and given a two-year stadium ban for hanging an effigy of Vinicius near Real's training ground in January.

Three other people were fined 5,000 euros (£4,300) and banned for one year for making racist gestures during Real's game at Valencia on 21 May.

Very strange performance from him today, or perhaps Araujo just has his number.

Do any RM fans think he has been especially irritable and not as mentally switched on of late because of all of the abuse? I've always thought of him as a mentally strong player, but he has been through a lot.

He has always been quite aware of what is happening in the stands. Already in the classic two years ago (before most of the racist incidents) Ancelotti called his attention to focus on the game.
In any case, Araújo is one of the best in the world and, with some exceptions, Vini cannot beat him

Araujo largely has his number.
