In Spain, four persons have been detained on suspicion of dangling a Vinicius Junior effigy off a bridge in January.
A banner reading “Madrid hates Real Madrid” was hanging from the railings before Real’s Copa Del Rey match against Atletico at the beginning of the year. The inflatable doll was wearing a Vinicius shirt.
And on Tuesday, the Spanish police said that they had detained four individuals.

They wrote on Twitter: “Arrested in #Madrid 4 people who allegedly hung a mannequin with the #Vinicius shirt on a bridge near the Ciudad Deportiva del @realmadrid.”
The arrests come in the wake of the most recent case of racism that has rocked Spanish football, in which Vinicius was the focus of racial taunts during Sunday’s LaLiga match against Valencia.
After hearing claimed monkey chants at the Mestalla, the Brazil international threatened to abandon the field during the second half.
Vinicius himself has drawn attention to what he characterizes as “continuous episodes spread across several cities in Spain,” according to his club Real Madrid, which declared the abuse to be a “hate crime” and filed a complaint with the Spanish State Attorney General’s Office.

A lifetime stadium ban from the Mestalla is in store for the supporter who made racial gestures toward Vinicius, according to Valencia, which confirmed that police had identified him.
On Monday night, Vinicius tweeted: “Every round played away from home is an unwelcome surprise. And this season, there were plenty. Death wishes, hanging dolls, and other criminal screams were all recorded. But the focus of the discourse is always on “isolated cases” or “a fan.” No, these are not unique instances. They are nonstop episodes that take place in several Spanish cities (and even in a television program).
“The video contains the proof. How many of these racists had their identities and images published online, I wonder now. To make it simpler, I respond, “Zero.” No one to share a depressing tale or issue those phony public apologies. What is required to make these folks criminals? And fairly penalize clubs? Why doesn’t La Liga charge sponsors? Why don’t televisions broadcast this heinousness every weekend?
“The issue is severe, and communications are broken. Not using my actions as an excuse for wrongdoing, either. You’re not a football; you’re a monster.

In response to a previous post by Vinicius in which the Brazilian international said that racism was “normal,” La Liga president Javier Tebas charged the forward with “criticizing and insulting” the league.
Tebas stated: “Neither Spain nor @LaLiga is racist in another tweet on Monday. This is quite unjust to say. How we, at LaLiga, condemn racism and combat it to the best of our ability. There were nine incidents of racial epithets this season, eight of which involved epithets directed against @vinijr. “We always track down the violators and file a report with the appropriate authorities. The fact that they are few doesn’t matter because they are persistent. Being that racism is an extremely specific case (9 complaints) that we are going to eliminate, we cannot allow the reputation of a competition that is about the symbol of peoples union to be tarnished, where more than 200 players are of black origin in 42 clubs that receive the respect and affection of the fans in every round.
