Real Madrid forward Vinicius Junior is once again a victim of racism and this time around is from a child.
The incident that occurred on Saturday during their La Liga fixture against Sevilla was the 19th attack the Brazilian has received so far as revealed by the player himself.
Vini Jr called on proper legislation including criminal punishments ahead of the 2030 World Cup.

“Congratulations to Sevilla for their quick positioning and punishment in yet another sad episode for Spanish football. Unfortunately, I had access to a video of another racist act in this Saturday’s match, this time carried out by a child.
I am very sorry that there is no one to educate you. I invest, and I invest a lot, in education in Brazil to form citizens with attitudes different from these. The face of today’s racist is plastered on websites as on many other occasions.
I hope the Spanish authorities do their part and change the legislation once and for all. These people must be criminally punished too.
It would be a great first step in preparing for the 2030 World Cup. I’m available to help. Sorry to seem repetitive, but this is isolated episode number 19. And counting…” he said
