Paris Saint-Germain superstar, Kylian Mbappe, has sent a message of support to Real Madrid winger Vinicius Junior after the Brazilian international was subjected to racism by La Liga supporters.

The incident occurred during Real Madrid’s La Liga 1-0 defeat against Valencia on Sunday.

Vinicius was the target of racism and abuse from fans at the Mestalla Stadium during Real Madrid’s defeat to Valencia.

He identified the group of fans responsible in the second half as play was paused for some minutes when referee Ricardo de Burgos Bengoetxea informed stadium officials, who implored for the racist chants to cease.

As per Scroll, the referee, in his post-match report, stated that a fan yelled ‘monkey, monkey’ at Vinicius.

The situation culminated deep in stoppage time in the second half as Vinicius was sent off for pushing Valencia attacker Hugo Duro in the face after a VAR check.

This only occurred after Valencia players got in Vinicius’ face and Duro put him in a headlock. The latter was not punished for his actions.

However, Vinicius posted a long message following the game on Instagram, claiming that racism in La Liga is the ‘norm.’

Reacting, Mbappe backed the 22-year-old attacker by posting an Instagram story that stated: “You’re not alone. We are with you & we support you.”
