Vinicius Junior target of racist calls from Mallorca fans

Real Madrid forward Vinicius Jr was racially abused by Real Mallorca fans during a La Liga match at the Son Moix stadium on Sunday.

Vinicius was fouled 10 times against Mallorca, making him the most fouled player in Europe’s top five leagues by a significant margin this season.

He was also targeted by those in the stands. This is the third time Vinicius has been subjected to racist abuse during a La Liga match – with the first incident occurring at Camp Nou against Barcelona in November 2021, before suffering the same fate during a meeting with Real Valladolid in December 2022.


Vinicius has spoken out against the lack of action by La Liga, accusing them of doing nothing to eliminate racism and other forms of prejudice from the game, with Javier Tebas later claiming the allegations made against the Spanish league were unfair and untruths.
