Real Madrid forward Vinicius Junior has insisted that he will continue to dance in celebrations despite his deterrent.
Spanish Agents Association president Pedro Brabo told the Real Madrid striker to “stop dancing like a monkey” after he celebrated a goal in a dance from last week’s 4-1 home win over Mallorca.
However, Brabo later retracted his statement for his racist views, but Vinicius insisted he would not stop doing so.
“They say happiness interferes,” Vinicius said in a video posted on social media. “The joy of black Brazilians winning European football ufabet is even more disturbing.”
“But my desire to win My smile and the sparkle in my eyes was much bigger than that. you can’t imagine I am a victim of xenophobic and racist comments.”
“Last week they started making my dance a crime. The dance is not mine, it belongs to Ronaldinho, Neymar, Paqueta, Griezmann, Joao Felix, Mateus Cunha… It’s Samba art. reggae singer and Americans of color.”
“Those dances are for celebrating the cultural diversity of the world. Accept it, respect it, I won’t stop.”
This is not the first time Vinicius has been subjected to racism. The Real Madrid forward said he suffered racist abuse during a Clasico clash against Barcelona in 2021.
Speaking about the incident, he said: ‘I think they deserve severe punishments, so they don’t do it again.
‘At the time I decided not to say anything because I was focused on the game.’
Vinicius was also subjected to alleged racist chants during Real Madrid’s game against Mallorca.
The forward was targeted by the home after scoring for Real Madrid.
